Employee Email

UK Employee email information


UK Employee email service will be updated from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 beginning in early January 2012. The upgrade will be non-disruptive and most users will notice little change. Web access will also receive a “face lift” with the Exchange 2010 upgrade and users may notice a change in the color scheme of the logon page when accessing their email via the web.

Migration Timeline:

The migration to Exchange 2010 will begin March 2012.


Exchange 2010 Key Benefits:

  • A default mailbox size of 1.5 GB, six times the current default.
  • Access to e-mail, voice mail, instant messaging from virtually any platform, Web-browser, or device.
  • Improved scheduling and configuring for resource mailbox calendar processing.
  • Individual management of distribution groups.
  • Ability to appoint a moderator to regulate messages sent to a distribution group.

Preparing for the Exchange 2010 update:

  • Verify Microsoft Windows machines have Outlook 2010 or 2007 installed.
  • Verify MacOS X machines have Entourage 2008 or Outlook 2011 installed.
  • Users of older versions should upgrade as soon as possible.
