The decommissioning of Legacy Email systems

  , ,

📥  Communications & Collaboration, Computing Services

As many of you will be aware, just over two years ago the University of Bath moved its Email and calendars to Microsoft Outlook. Since then work has been continuing behind the scenes to decommission the old services and move partner organisations.

We are pleased to report that this work is nearing completion with the last of the legacy systems due to be decommissioned at the end of July 2017.

In 2017 to 2018 Computing Services hopes to move the Microsoft Outlook system forwards by upgrading to the latest release, Outlook 2016. This will enable new collaboration and document sharing features to be introduced as well as a range of other improvements and enhancements.

As a reminder the legacy Email systems included:

  • imaphost.bath.ac.uk
  • smtphost.bath.ac.uk
  • mailhost.bath.ac.uk

Many thanks

Following on from the migration of email to Exchange, the legacy webmail service (webmail.bath.ac.uk) is being retired on Friday 7 October 2016.

Anyone who requires interim access to legacy IMAP mailboxes can still do so using alternative email client applications such as Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook. If you have any issues surrounding this, please contact the Computing Services IT Service Desk for assistance.
