In order to stabilize our existing email environment, we have migrated all CSUN faculty and staff to Microsoft's cloud-based email, Office 365. In addition to providing a more stable faculty/staff email environment, Office 365 offers an enhanced interface for Webmail users, especially for Mac users.
The IT division migrated to Office 365 last fall as early adopters to test the migration process and email environment. Faculty and staff migrations were completed this summer. Going forward, group email accounts and resource accounts will be migrated over the next few weeks.
The migration to Office 365 takes place behind the scenes with no downtime. Once an email account is migrated, Outlook users will be prompted to restart email and users on other email clients (e.g. Thunderbird and Mac Mail) and mobile devices will need to adjust their email settings.
