University email account upgrade underway

31 October 2011

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has been working to upgrade University staff email accounts to Exchange 2010. As of last week, ICT have upgraded more than 3,334 user accounts to Exchange 2010, which provides the following improvements:

  • The new Outlook Web Access(OWA) has more functionality, making it easier to use email from any web browser.
  • Improved compatibility with Mac computers, including the ability to use Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac
  • A simpler and more efficient email archiving system

For more information about these features and what to expect when your account is upgraded, please visit the Ask Sydney - ICT website. It is expected that all University staff will be upgraded to Exchange 2010 by the end of the year. You will be directly contacted by ICT closer to your scheduled migration. If you have any questions or concerns about this upgrade, please contact the ICT Exchange 2010 project team.
