New Webmail system is launched, to replace old system at year's end
Posted October 7, 2002; 03:23 p.m.
A new, improved Webmail program has been launched and is ready for use. The new program has additional features and is much faster than the current system.
Webmail allows anyone with a University email account to read and respond to emails through a Web browser. This access works from remote locations as well as on campus.
The old Webmail is scheduled to be replaced by the new system on Jan. 1, 2003. The Office of Information Technology is encouraging members of the University community to begin trying the new Webmail system now, so that it isn't a sudden change for everyone.
During this interim period, the Webmail link on the main Web site will go to an intermediate page that provides access to both the current and new programs, and offers brief information about the new program.
The new version of Webmail is a result of OIT's upgrading its mail server to the latest version of iPlanet Messaging Server on July 27. The new program includes options for customizing the appearance of the list of messages in the "inbox," as well as easier handling of attachments and the ability to save outgoing messages in the "sent" folder.
