UMail & Exchange Report Status update, the OIT migration, what it means to be an early adopter - Caprice Post Production system up. OIT Alpha users to be migrated Monday. New uNID Tools to be ready 2/15. Current faculty/staff/student accounts provisioned. Department Migration - Amir Masood and Roy Schulz Migration tool specific for departments: GroupWise to Exchange. Quest migration tool - best product and has Microsoft's blessing. Throughput is about 40 MB/hour - encourage your users to clean out their mailboxes!!!! Attachments tend to slow the process. Have users save attachments to a local or network drive. C. Demo of the Delegated Administration tools - Seth Wanlass There will be an "Activate UMail" button that is the first step - will change routing to new UMail account. Then user can move iPlanet mail. Seth demonstrated the prf file download. In the Mail icon in the Control Panel - no profiles. Open the downloaded file. Outlook will import information into their Email Accounts (say Yes). It will create a profile called UMail - will override an existing profile named UMail. The mailbox will be created in Outlook with the user name from PeopleSoft. uNID Tools will allow the user to set up a different, preferred name if they choose. All secure configuration settings are now in place. This prf file is only for Outlook 2003 (none for Entourage or Evolution). One could be made available for IT Admins to use on multiple machines. ** Delegated Admins get the same set of tools as the OIT and ITS Help Desks get. DAs can lock areas of the account. Can increase quota, email send or receive size, number of recipients. Can create new aliases, forward mail, etc. Defaults: 500 MB storage for staff/faculty, 200 MB for students. 10 MB email size coming and going, 25 recipients. Please use the campus DMail system to send unsolicited (but approved) emails to large campus audiences. Roles are based on ORG ID. Strange situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis. ACS provides only one ORG ID and job title per person. Preferred email name will only be reflected in your UMail account - not in the Campus Directory. Any campus help desk with the ability to reset ACS passwords are the delegated admins for students.
