During the summer student Netmail accounts and ‘G’ Drive file storage are being upgraded to Microsoft Live@edu services:

EMAIL: Students old 60MB Netmail accounts will be replaced with new 10GB Microsoft Outlook Live mailbox, providing access to email, contacts and calendar from any location.  It is a much more collaborative system than the current Netmail service, giving students the ability to share files and folders; use the online Office applications; share Outlook calendars, make meeting requests etc . Outlook Live also allows access to Windows Live Messenger to chat and make video calls.

FILE STORAGE: Students old 150MB ‘G’ Drive will be replaced with a new 25GB Windows Live SkyDrive, which will allow access to, and sharing of files online at any time, with a much improved storage capacity.

PRINT & COPY: The current student print and copy system will be upgraded to an account based solution, making it easier to manage print credit.

WHAT STUDENTS MUST DO BEFORE THEY LEAVE FOR THE SUMMER

EMAIL: Forward existing mail that students wish to keep from your University Netmail Account to a personal email account e.g. Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, etc.

FILE STORAGE: Copy ‘G’ Drive files students wish to keep to an external device such as a USB hard drive or flash drive.

PRINT AND COPY: Use all print credit on students existing cards.  If this is not possible retain a minimum credit balance on cards as a new card will be issued to students in September and credit cannot be transferred
