Academic Health Center Information Technology (AHC-IT) will be upgrading your mail and calendar services to Exchange 2010 on Wednesday night (11/16/11) between 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM the following morning. During this time you can continue to access your email and calendar using your preferred client or Outlook Web Access at http://mail.ufl.edu.
What to Expect
After your mailbox has been moved there will be no action required for most customers other than restarting Outlook. Customers with Macintosh computers may need to make minor configuration changes as detailed below. Most mobile devices should continue to work after the mailbox move. If you are experiencing any problems with email / calendar access please restart the device. You may have to reconfigure your mobile application to use the server name of mail.ufl.edu . Additional information for configuring mobile devices can be found at http://www.mail.ufl.edu/mobile.shtml.
Please contact your departmental IT support staff if your email client is not working after the email migration. Please note that you can also access your email and calendar by using Outlook Web Access at http://mail.ufl.edu.
