July 6, 2015

If you still use GroupWise for any purpose, contact the DoIT Helpdesk at (815) 753-8100 to find a different solution.

As a precaution, although it will no longer be possible to log in to GroupWise, the GroupWise servers will not be shut down until after fall semester starts.

Over the past year, approximately 9,000 faculty, staff and retiree mailboxes have been migrated, and 140 Outlook training sessions were given for more than 1,500 participants.

Novell Messenger will continue to run until sometime later in July. Office 365 includes Skype for Business, formerly known as Microsoft Lync, for messaging.
