Scheduled Service Change: Exchange DNS change, Apple Mail 4 mailbox moves
For all users, there will be a new, Cornell-branded login screen for Outlook Web Access (https://exchange.cornell.edu). Outlook Web Access itself will be the same for most users.\n\nThere should be no other impact for any users except for Apple Mail 4 users.\n\nImpact for Apple Mail 4 users:\n\n * Mailboxes for Apple Mail 4 users will be moved to Exchange Server 2010 early Saturday morning, August 6, from midnight until approximately 8 am. This is a necessary step to avoid disrupting their ability to continue using Apple Mail 4. \n\n * Apple Mail 4 users will not be able to use Apple Mail 4 while their mailbox is being moved. They can use Outlook Web Access (https://exchange.cornell.edu) or another email client during this time.\n\n * The Apple Mail 4 users whose mailboxes are being moved have been notified, and their unit's ITMC representative or point of contact has been informed.\n\n * After their mailbox is moved to Exchange Server 2010, Apple Mail 4 users will have access to a new version of Outlook Web Access, renamed as Outlook Web App. This new version provides full functionality across all supported browsers (Internet Explorer 7 or newer, Firefox 3.0.1 or newer, Safari 3.1 or newer, or Chrome). The URL will still be exchange.cornell.edu\n
There is no workaround for this issue
At midnight on Saturday, August 6, CIT will begin redirecting all Exchange logins to Exchange Server 2010 via a DNS change. This work is in preparation for a campuswide upgrade of the Exchange email and calendar system. It should have no effect on any individuals except those who use Apple Mail 4.\n\nFrom midnight to 8 am, the mailboxes of Apple Mail 4 users will be moved to Exchange Server 2010.
