October, 2013: AS&E is Migrating to a New Email Platform: AS&E IT has begun migrating all faculty and staff to one email platform: Microsoft Exchange. The new platform offers many benefits including an improved email and calendaring environment and greater storage capacity. It also replaces all currently used platforms, including Zimbra. The migration will be done department by department with the goal of finishing by the end of June 2014. The process will be automated as much as possible.
Zimbra is an email and calendar solution that also provides document storage and editing. This web-based interface offers mobility and synchronization to desktop client applications such as Outlook, Apple Mail and iCal, and Thunderbird and Lightning. Zimbra is provided to faculty, staff, and graduate students in Arts, Sciences and Engineering.
