OIT set a deadline of February 28th to move all employees, retirees, emeriti, guests and grad students from Oak email and Oracle Calendar to a new Microsoft Exchange email system. To date, OIT has moved nearly 10,000 Oak users to Exchange. OIT will be working closely with remaining Oak users over the next month to help them move to Exchange so we can accomplish our goal of retiring Oak email and Oracle Calendar.
OIT has not set a date yet for shutting down Oak email and Oracle Calendar, but we encourage you to contact the OIT Service Desk as soon as possible at 740-593-1222 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your move to Exchange. There is a separate project underway for moving Oak web pages to a new system, and more details on this project will be available soon on the OIT web site.
On the evening of February 28th, OIT will move all grad students from Oak to Exchange. Grad students who want to copy their Oak email to Exchange can find instructions on the Exchange web site http://www.ohio.edu/oit/email/exchange/gradstudents.cfm
There is a separate project underway to move OU-COM Exchange users to the OIT Exchange system. We have not set a date yet for this move, but you can find project updates on this web page http://www.ohio.edu/oit/email/exchange/oucom-exchange.cfm.
