The change will
take place officially
on June 30,
2008. On June 30,
email for all current students will begin automatically forwarding to
your new aumail account.
All students and
alumni need to switchover as of
June 30, 2008. We will
forward mail from active student accounts until October 1, 2008 or
until the server is replaced. Alumni mail will not be forwarded.
While this change
will provide students and alumni
with a much richer
email experience, some inconvenience is inevitable with the switchover.
The test group has
been extremely positive about
the change over the
past several months and most users of the new system have been pleased.
Your new aumail
email account is now available.
