Miami undergraduate students can now activate their new Miami e-mail/calendar account – muConnect powered by Google.
All students have the opportunity to self-migrate themselves voluntarily until January 4, 2011. At that time students will be required to switch to the new system. If you activate your new e-mail account by April 23 you will be entered in a drawing for some great prizes, including a Google backpack and Google t-shirts.
If you want to activate your new e-mail account on your own, you can begin the process at www.muohio.edu/GoGoogle. You will also find instructions in IT Help at: http://www.muohio.edu/ithelp/solution041009909140949. IT Help also has instructions for migrating mail. Go to http://ithelp.muohio.edu and select muConnect Powered by Google from the Featured Categories and Solutions section to view the entire list of related solutions for moving your messages, setting up a desktop client, and connecting your mobile device.
Some advantages of the new e-mail/calendar system include:
- A lifetime e-mail account through the University
- A substantially greater amount of storage than is presently provided (1 GB to 7 GB)
- Ability to collaborate with the Miami student community through Google services
If you have questions about activating a new muConnect powered by Google account, or questions about migrating mail from the old system, please contact the Support Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (513) 529-7900.
