UWA have now commenced migrating staff emails to the new platform hosted by Microsoft Office 365. These migrations will be done in batches and running through until September 2017. One of the big new features of the migration is the mail storage going from 1GB to 100GB. Prior to your migration you will receive two emails.
Below are examples of what the legitimate emails for the migration will look like. They will not ask you to login into a website to confirm your details or upgrade your mailbox! You may confirm these with Me if you’re unsure.
- Example email for 7 days prior to the scheduled migration
- Example email for 1 day prior to the schedule migration
If you have a smart phone or tablet configured with your email, you will need to reconfigure them to support the new platform. BITS have provided documentation to assist with this process. http://www.bits.uwa.edu.au/it-help/office365/
Apple computers may also need to be reconfigured. When you’re migration is scheduled, please let us know so we can assist in reconfiguring outlook or apple mail on your computer.
