Over the next few months all CGP accounts will be migrated to Office 365 (this includes your e-mails, calendars, and contacts). Outlook will now be the supported mail application on the standard desktop—Thunderbird will be removed. You will no longer access your e-mail on the web via imail.iup.edu, but at mail.iup.edu (notice the removal of the preceding i). This conversion will happen in stages, and you will be notified when it’s time for your account to be migrated. Thanks for your patience during the adoption of this new system!
This is the projected timeline for your Office 365
Inventory additional mailing lists
You will need to make a list of any other mailing lists you have linked into your account. You can log a ticket after the migration with the name of the lists, and someone will assist linking them back in to your account.
Prepare your Contacts
Before the migration to Office 365, you will need to update any contacts in your address book. Remove/update any IUP e-mail address that include @grove.iup.edu as part of the address.
Please note that only “Contacts” and “Personal Address Book“ will be migrated to your Office 365 account. If you have addresses outside of those two areas that you need to keep, you will need to manually move them into one of those areas.
Please follow these instructions to prepare contacts.
Prepare your calendar
Before the migration to Office 365, you will need to rename any personal calendars you may have (please note, this does NOT include calendars from other users that you have linked in, only sub-calendars of your main calendar). Only calendars that include the word “calendar” in the name will be migrated. For example, if you have an additional calendar named “Personal,” you will need to rename this to “PersonalCalendar.” If other people have access to your calendar, you will also need to take an inventory of special calendar permissions.
Inventory list of additional calendars
You will need to make a list of calendars you have set up for both rooms and people. These will need to be linked back in to Outlook. Please log a ticket if you need assistance getting the calendars set back up.
Inventory list of mailing lists linked into Thunderbird
If you manage other mailing lists in your account, please make a note of what they are so you can place an ihelp ticket after the migration. These will all need to be manually linked back in.
