New e-mail system

The university will have a new e-mail system beginning June 27, when all UGA faculty, staff and students using UGAMail will be migrated to a system based on
Microsoft’s Live@EDU service.

The new system will have e-mail with 10 gigabytes of storage space, better spam protection and mobile phone integration. The system also will include a built-in calendar, Office Live Workspace for collaborative projects and a SkyDrive with 25 gigabytes of free online file storage for faculty, staff and students.

Current e-mail addresses will remain unchanged and users’ e-mail, folders, address books and blocked and safe sender lists will be automatically migrated to the new system. E-mail forwarding settings also should be automatically migrated.

Hands-on training classes will be offered at UGA Training and Development Department from 10 a.m. until noon June 14 and June 21 and from 2-4 p.m. June 17 and 23. Participants should register in advance at and are encouraged to have attended one of the informational sessions held in May and early June.

Additional training sessions will be announced July 1 at
