FermiMail migration begins next week

The Core Computing Division recently installed the new FermiMail system. Beginning Monday, Oct. 31, the email service team will begin virtually moving users to FermiMail. The migration will begin with Exchange users, who will be moved during the next several weeks. After that, the team will migrate IMAP and Lotus Domino users.

Each email user will receive email from the Service Desk with more details about their migration approximately two weeks prior to their migration date. You can view some of these details under the “What to Expect” section on the FermiMail website.

FermiMail offers integrated features such as a calendar and meeting room planner. Once users are transferred to the new system, they can immediately use the calendar features to manage their individual calendars. Meeting room reservations will be moved from Meeting Maker to the new calendar system once all members of the organizations have been moved to FermiMail. Individuals in charge of making conference room reservations will be notified in advance of these moves.

There will be a Brown Bag lunch session from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 2 in WH One West. Members of the email team will also be on hand at the Doctor-is-in booth in the Wilson Hall atrium during lunch hours on Nov. 1 and 2.

Consult the FermiMail website for more information about the migration, including the current schedule.
