III. Guest Speaker:  Aron Teel, Manager, Departmental Computing Support.

Aron discussed the transition of those departments who switched to Outlook when CorporateTime was retired.  He also addressed the upcoming change in e-mail service for University students.  Students will have Gmail or Windows Live for their email accounts that they can use while attending the University and after graduation. He also explained that IMAP could be used in Outlook to connect to the ITC Exchange server for those users needing both ITC and HSCS Exchange accounts.  Classes will be offered to those who would like to learn more about utilizing public folders and shared calendars.  Here is a website for those trying to setup ITC Exchange accounts: http://www.itc.virginia.edu/exchange/

For those that need to forward email from ITC Exchange you can follow the links for "Account Management" then "Exchange Tools" from this website: https://www.web.virginia.edu/mgmt/

Please send Aron an email with any questions, teel@virginia.edu.
