As was previously announced, is moving of our campus-based Exchange email infrastructure to Exchange Online, in Microsoft's Azure cloud.

This migration is part of T&I's ongoing commitment to providing rock-solid, reliable and sustainable technology infrastructure for the campus. Moving to Exchange Online is a critical step in making sure that our employee email system continues to be available anytime and anywhere, even in the event of a campus emergency.

With Exchange Online, employees can continue to use Outlook on their desktop and connect to their CSUCI email from their web browser and smartphone. Exchange Online also provides larger mailbox storage, improved security, and a new user-friendly, web-based email interface.

To date, T&I has successfully migrated several groups of test users with very few issues. Migration of the bulk of faculty, staff and student assistant email accounts is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 7, 2017 at 7 p.m., and will occur in batches over the course of five business days. During the migration, T&I support technicians will be available to help answer questions and resolve issues.

Further details on the migration, including timeline, latest news, batch migration groupings, and other details will be available on the Migration to Exchange Online and Microsoft Azure web page.

We appreciate your patience and support as we complete this important migration. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact project manager Asha Ramachandra, asha.ramachandra@csuci.edu or Director of IT Strategy Peter Mosinskis at peter.mosinskis@csuci.edu.
