MU’s Division of IT sent out an e-mail yesterday to update users about the ongoing crossover to Microsoft’s Outlook Live e-mail service.
According to the e-mail, about 5,000 students have made the switch so far.
The e-mail also points out that although students’ e-mail address names will change, they don’t need to update or recreate distribution lists.
A previously sent e-mail said messages sent to the old addresses will be automatically forwarded to the new ones. However, students must transfer any old messages they wish to keep themselves.
IT expects all student e-mail accounts to be transitioned to Outlook Live by the fall semester.
