Employees urged to transition email service

The final phase of the move to Microsoft Exchange from the ITS centrally-managed IMAP system (webmail.unc.edu, imap.unc.edu) will end on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2012 when Information Technology Services (ITS) retires the IMAP service.

Users should migrate any remaining email in the IMAP system and confirm that their account can be deleted prior to this date.

To migrate IMAP email to your current Exchange account, log in and click submit. To move email to HeelMail, see detailed instructions on how to self-migrate. For assistance, please call 962-HELP.

For employees who have already migrated their old email or have no need to, indicate that your mailbox contents can be permanently archived, then deleted from IMAP. Just log in and click submit to confirm.

ITS will automatically produce a permanent archive of remaining content on mailboxes left in IMAP as of the Jan. 3 deadline. After content is permanently archived, retrieval will be onerous and only possible in the most extreme circumstances. ITS encourages users to migrate any required content prior to Jan. 3. After the permanent archive is stored, ITS will delete the remaining accounts from IMAP and decommission the service.
