May 16, 2013 - Microsoft has postponed this upgrade. Students have been notified of the delay, and we will post more details once Microsoft provides us with a new date. The postponement will not affect student access to Catmail, and we are still recommending that students sync their passwords.
On May 18, 2013, Microsoft will begin applying an upgrade to Catmail, OHIO's undergraduate and alumni email system. This upgrade will provide welcome improvements, including an increased quota and automatic password synchronization with My OHIO; however, it also has the potential to disrupt email access for some students.
Reasons for this include:
The upgrade will not affect faculty, staff, and graduate student Exchange accounts, but OIT asks that summer session instructors take this upgrade into account when communicating with students via email.
OIT will be communicating directly with Catmail users during the coming weeks to urge them to synchronize their passwords and update their mobile devices before May 18.
