WebMail Maintenance - June 25, 2014

Last updated on June 13, 2014 at 2:12PM

On Wednesday, June 25, 2014, during the regularly scheduled maintenance window (5:00-7:00 a.m.), Information Technology Services (ITS) will perform an upgrade to WebMail. During this time, intermittent outages may occur. E-mail users of the POP and IMAP protocols will not be affected.

The WebMail upgrade will contain the following feature enhancements:

*If any version of the word “attach” is detected within the body of a newly composed e-mail and the user presses the Send button without any attachments present, users will receive a warning prompting them to add an attachment.
*Any folder, except for the system folders (inbox, saved drafts, outbox, attachments, junk, and trash), may be renamed.
IMAP Users will now be able to view their IMAP inbox size.
*The WebMail homepage graphic will change to use the “Forever Stamp”.

Users trying to access WebMail may experience a degradation and/or a brief interruption of service during this period.
