Upgrade to Microsoft Exchange 2007 - Completed

Migration Schedule for Moving Mailboxes to Exchange 2007

View pages in this section

The move to new Exchange 2007 servers will involve the migration of all existing Exchange mailboxes. This will include your e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks and personal folders.  All public folders will also be moved.

Each mailbox will take around 10 minutes to move (depending on your mailbox size) and you will not be able to access your mailbox during this time.  To minimise the impact of this, all mailboxes are being moved out of hours, between 6pm on Friday, and before 5 pm on Saturday.

The schedule for mailbox moves is: 

13 - 14 February: ISS, School of Medicine, 10 users from Central Administration

After obtaining and reviewing feedback from the pilot groups the migration schedule will be;
