Office 365

From late fall 2012 into spring 2013, the Cornell email and calendar system for faculty and staff will be switched from the locally provided Exchange service to a Microsoft cloud-based service called Office 365.

Office 365 provides the same email and calendar system you use today, and you’ll be able to continue using the same Outlook, Outlook Web App, Thunderbird, Apple Mail/iCal, and other ways of accessing email and calendar. Your email address will continue to be the same one you use now.

New benefits you’ll have with Office 365:

Your mailbox will be over three times bigger (25 GB instead of 7 GB).

Later in 2013, you’ll be able to use web-based versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and the collaboration system SharePoint.

Preparing for Office 365

Depending on how you access your email and calendar now, you may need to take a few steps before and after your account is moved to Office 365. You will be notified by email 3 weeks before your account is scheduled to move, and you will also receive a few reminders.

Timing

For planning purposes, you can expect your Exchange mailbox to be moved to Office 365 between December 2012 and early in the spring 2013 semester. You will be notified by email 3 weeks before your account is scheduled to move, and you will also receive a few reminders. Your department’s IT or computer support staff will also know the timing of your move.

Questions?

Updates about the Office 365 project will be provided throughout the transition by way of email and updates to this web site. If you have any questions or concerns at this point, please consult your department’s IT or computer support staff, or email cornell-office365@cornell.edu.
