IC Email System has Moved to Microsoft Live@edu


Contributed by Karen Sunderland

As of Sunday, June 10th the Ithaca College email system has been successfully moved to Microsoft Live@edu. The new system will provide a reliable, robust email and calendar system (the calendar phase will be implemented in the coming months), including 10 GB of email storage. All users will need to perform certain steps in order to access the new email system. Please reference the below guides for instructions.

Note: Some email that was deleted or moved within the last week may re-appear in your Inbox. Any messages that re-appear will need to be deleted again. This was an unexpected result of the final cutover to the new system.

Also, it's possible that the migration of contacts from Webmail will not be complete until sometime during the day on Monday, June 11th.

Accessing the New Email System

Email Signatures

Since many people will need to re-create their email signature, this is a good time to review the email signature standards recommended by Marketing Communications. Instructions for creating a signature are included in the above guides.

Email Scams

No matter what email programs or systems we use, there are likely to be email "scam" messages sent to our accounts from time to time. As a reminder, always use caution and common sense when it comes to any notices sent to you about your email account (or your bank account, or an unexpected inheritance from a stranger, etc.). For any messages related to IC accounts, be suspicious of "from" addresses or long Web links that don't appear to have anything to do with Ithaca College. When in doubt, contact the ITS Helpdesk to verify the authenticity of any account-related email messages you receive. And remember, the Helpdesk will never send you an email asking for your password!

ITS appreciates the continued patience and cooperation of the campus community as we get used to the new system.
