IT Services is pleased to
announce that IUP will transition its
student e-mail system (I-mail) to Microsoft Office
365 soon after Spring Break (currently targeted
for the week following Spring Break).
students will each receive 50 GB of mail storage,
a huge increase from the 300 MB provided by the
current I-Mail system, while also providing a modern
web-based interface using Outlook Web Access
(OWA). The cloud-based nature of Office 365 will
provide access to the latest versions of software
directly from the vendor and easy portability to
multiple mobile devices. Students will also
receive access to the Microsoft OneDrive file
hosting service as part of the migration.
The conversion process
will migrate all existing student e-mail and
contacts (within I-mail) to the new Office 365
Further updates and full
details will be coming soon.
