The Office of the CIO is excited to share that students, faculty, and staff will transition to Outlook (powered by Exchange) email on August 4, 2017. The newly branded KSUmail will replace Zimbra for faculty and staff and Gmail for students.

Exciting new functionality and features

  • KSUmail will have a 50GB inbox sizecompared to Zimbra's 3GB default inbox
  • Faculty and staff will gain additional collaboration with students (shared address book, email folders, and calendars)
  • KSUmail will offer more robust integrations with Microsoft Office products (for example, sending an attachment directly from the application)

Critical Transition details: We are preparing for the email transition now.

Beginning Monday, May 22nd, we will start duplication and importing Zimbra mail older than February 22, 2017 to the new KSUmail service. This process is necessary to migrate approximately 80 million emails (~9TB of data) for the August deployment with minimal downtime. 

Due to the volume of emails being duplicated behind the scenes, we ask that you not delete or reorganize mail that has already been duplicated as these changes will not be reflected in your new KSUmail account. 

You can find a roadmap outlining dates of mailbox duplication from Zimbra to KSUmail here.

UITS will provide hands-on training, written documentation, and videos on how to use your new email system and how to take advantages of its new features
