Huskymail Upgrade Postponed

The Huskymail upgrade scheduled for Thanksgiving break has been postponed.

During this semester, several Huskymail infrastructure pieces have been restructured in order to improve performance.  As such, we have continued to work with several vendors on longer term solutions to these issues.  These processes have taken priority over the upcoming scheduled upgrade and thus will need to be rescheduled.  Our Huskymail Team is presently working on this timeline and we should be able to schedule this upgrade in the near future.  We thank you for your time and patience.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

The Huskymail upgrade scheduled to happen on Aug. 27th has been postponed until Thanksgiving break.

Multiple parties have provided feedback that an email downtime right before classes began would inconvenience faculty, staff and students as they prepare for the beginning of the term. IT has decided to reschedule the upgrade until Thanksgiving break, which is the next window of opportunity for this upgrade. We will send further information in November about the timing of this upgrade.
