Email upgrade coming June 14

It’s happening – we’re throwing the switch on the email upgrade Friday, June 14.

Student email is moving from Microsoft’s Live@Edu to Office 365. The transition will begin at 11 p.m. Friday, June 14. The new system will include cool features such as file sharing through SharePoint Online, online MS Office programs for creating and reading documents, instant messaging, and online meetings.

Email will be unavailable through the weekend. Microsoft tells us it may be down for 2-5 days. Make arrangements with your professor if you have to submit assignments. Faculty email and Blackboard will be unaffected.

(The upgrade was originally scheduled for May 10, but was postponed. Columbus State moved to Live@Edu last year, and this was a separate project.)

What do you have to do? Not much. The email login screen will change, so you’ll need to bookmark a new email page. Your old Live@Edu account will still remain, and you can keep it or close it.
