Hello -first name-,
This is an official notice from IITS regarding the migration of our e-mail and calendar services to Google Apps.
Your UC e-mail will be migrated to Google Apps between -start date- and -end date-. As of -time- on -start date-, you should start using your new Google Apps account for your UC e-mail. Please use the following URL in a web browser to access your Utica College e-mail once your migration has begun:
As part of the e-mail migration process, your UC password will be temporarily changed. Starting on -start date-, your temporary password will be:
During the migration period, you should use this temporary password to access UC services such as e-mail, BannerWeb, library databases, and password-protected pages on the UC website. Please make a note of this temporary password, as it will not be possible to change your UC password during the migration of your e-mail.
* Your password for on-campus PC and wireless network logins will NOT be changed during the e-mail migration.
* You MUST use your new Google Apps account for all UC e-mail services once your migration has begun. E-mail will stop being delivered to your current UC mailbox as of -start date-, and new messages will only be delivered to your Google Apps account.
* E-mails you received prior to -start date- may be missing from your Google Apps account for up to 2 days after your migration begins, but these e-mails will appear as they are migrated from our existing e-mail server. Please see http://www.utica.edu/google for details about which messages will and will not be migrated.
* As of -end date-, your UC e-mail should be fully migrated to your Google Apps account. Your regular password will be restored on -end date- at -time-.
IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTE: IITS will never ask you for your password during this migration. It is common for "phishing" e-mails to claim they are informing you about an e-mail system upgrade, and then ask you to provide your username and password. We actually are changing our e-mail system, but we will NEVER need your password during this process. If you receive an e-mail which asks you for your password, please do not respond. If you have any doubts about an e-mail which you have received, please feel free to contact James Farr, our Information Security Officer, at email@example.com and ask about the message.
Thank you in advance for your patience during this process. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to verify the authenticity of this message, please contact the Utica College Help Desk by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 315-792-3115.
