E-mail system will be down Sunday morning April 10
2:00 am - 12:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
This Sunday (April 10), personnel in UA's Information Technology Services department will upgrade the student e-mail system. This means you won't be able to log in or read e-mail from 2 a.m. to noon on Sunday. Mail that arrives during the downtime will be held and delivered after the system comes back up. All such mail is expected to be delivered by mid-afternoon.

This upgrade includes both a hardware and a software component. Due to increased space on the newer hardware, mail quotas will be increased from 20 to 75 megabytes. Additionally, we will be adding features in the coming months to take advantage of the capabilities of the new software version.

No changes are necessary to access the updated mail system, and no
differences should be noticeable, except for the increased quotas and improved performance.

Students can continue to use http://www.webmail.uakron.edu/, access webmail via Zipline, or use a standalone mail program.
