Faculty and Staff Email Transition to Exchange

We are excited to announce the migration of Belmont’s e-mail system to Microsoft Exchange. This faculty/staff e-mail transition is expected to be complete by May 31, 2009. There are many advantages to this new system, including a simplified e-mail address, 20 times more storage, sophisticated remote access and better compatibility with mobile devices.
You will receive a follow-up to this e-mail with your new account name and password along with instructions for how to logon to the new address. Your new e-mail address will be: first.last@belmont.edu. Your former address will still be accessible and able to receive e-mail, and it will forward to your new address until August 2010. User Services will personally assist you with the transfer of your previous e-mail and calendar to the new mail system; or, if you want to complete the transfer yourself, step-by-step instructions will be provided.
A list of “Frequently Asked Questions” can be found by clicking here. Additionally, representatives from IT will be presenting this information at upcoming college meetings and at the university-wide staff meeting on Fri., April 17 at 1 p.m. in the Vince Gill Room.
We think you will find that this new system is a positive step for the university. Again, more details and instructions for set-up will follow in the next few days. If you have questions, contact your User Services representative or a member of Network Services.
