Staff email is getting bigger
Over the coming months, IT Services will be moving staff email across to Office 365.
Following feedback they will also be increasing email quotas, from 1GB by default to 50GB. Please take extra care if you receive emails about account quota increases or account lockouts that ask you to enter a password. These messages will almost certainly be scams and not from IT Services. If you are in any doubt, call IT Services on 01509 222333.
Office 365 is hosted in the Microsoft Cloud and is a reliable system, available 99.9% of the time.
There will be no change to the way you use your desktop client. However, if you access your work email on your mobile or tablet you’ll need to make a small change to the configuration on your device. Details of how to do this are available on the IT Services website. You will be able to access your email via the built-in email client, new OWA web based email and OWA App for iPhone/iPad, which is available free from the App Store.
IT Services will let you know in advance when your email will be migrated.
Further information about Office 365 is available on the IT Services Office 365 web pages.
