Backend Email Changes + Extras

ITS will be migrating the Universities email storage from Brightsolid’s Exchange hosting to Microsoft’s own Office 365 platform. For anyone using the Outlook client this hopefully should be a seamless transition.
The planned date for Chemistry to move is Friday 26th June.

There is additional benefits to moving to Office 365:

  • Use of the online version of Office – Handy for editing documents when you don’t have access to a fully copy of Office
  • 5 copies of full Office to install pretty much wherever you want
  • Lync – Desktop instant messaging, video conferencing and sharing client
  • OneDrive – Unlimited Cloud storage
