UTmail+ for Faculty, Librarians and Staff


UTmail+ for faculty, librarians and staff is coming!

What is UTmail+?

UTmail+ powered by Office 365 is a comprehensive online e-communication and collaboration service provided by Microsoft. The service provides virtually anywhere access to familiar Office tools (e.g., online versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint…), e-mail, calendaring, instant message, audio/video conferencing, and cloud storage services. Note that the online Office applications do not replace PC/Mac-based software. They are adjuncts to the software you may already have.

Migration

Account migrations will begin August 2017 with a pilot group and then rolled out in phases to the rest of the University. Your department/division will have 8 weeks of lead time to prepare for migration and receive training. For a detailed timeline, see the Office 365 website.

Important: Accounts will be moved starting approximately 5 pm on the day you are scheduled for migration. Full access to your new UTmail+ account will be available the following morning. 

Pre-Migration Checklist

To prepare for your migration to UTmail+, we recommend doing the following:
