Migration to Microsoft Exchange

Starting in March 2022, University IT will begin migrating all mailboxes to a central Microsoft Exchange Server to provide a unified mail system for all University user groups. Due to the high number of mail accounts, the migration of the individual mail systems is divided into several tranches and is expected to take until the end of the year.

Your mailbox has already been migrated to the Exchange mail system or the migration date for your mailbox is approaching? You can find all the information and instructions that are important for you at Microsoft Exchange.
