Over the weekend of January 26, 2013, undergraduate students were successfully migrated to their new email service, Microsoft Office 365.
A total of 46,558 accounts were migrated, made up of:
446,861 emails were delivered in the first four days the new service was in production (January 26-29) - that's almost half a million mail messages!
Student feedback on the new service has been positive thus far as based on mentions to @queensprincipal, @queensu and @bjuul on social media.
So what's so great about the new undergraduate student email? O365 is the first externally hosted solution offered by ITServices and this brings usability, environmental and economic benefits, in addition to greatly enhanced functionality.
Online documentation about the new service, including tutorials, can be found on the ITServices website.
