Email Migration

Summary of the project:

The first phase of the Modern Office Programme is to migrate all Falmouth University, FX Plus and The SU of all mailboxes from the existing on-premise solution to the Cloud-based O365 service.

Moving all users to the Cloud lays the foundation for subsequent phases of the programme, which aims to transform the way people work by promoting more collaborative working practices via the adoption of the latest technologies provided within the Microsoft Office 365 software suite.

What changes for me?

  • The old mailbox limit of 2GB has been removed
  • You can focus on important emails and actions with the Focused Inbox.
  • You will be able to change the appearance of your calendar, modify the calendar to reflect your workweek, or if required change the time zone associated with your calendar.

  • You can review tracked responses and RSVP's for meetings, even the ones that you did not set up yourself.  You will also be able to create polls and vote on important emails.

  • You have the ability to listen to your emails if you don’t have time to read them.

  • You will be provided with ‘insights’ of your monthly wellbeing, top week collaborators, important suggestions and weekly collaboration statistics.

  • You can learn more about your contacts by seeing who they report to, their chain of command within the organisation, and the colleagues they work with the most.

  • Email security will be improved to diminish phishing & spam, reducing unintended risks with better built-in security and enabling reporting of any suspicious emails directly from Outlook.

You may also want to configure your email so that it comes through on another device (e.g. tablet, mobile phone). For instructions on how to do this, please have a look at one of our helpful guides available on the Modern Office SharePoint page.

For any questions or queries regarding your email account, please contact the IT Service Desk.
