Office 365 - Email and Calendaring Pilot Landing Page

On this page:

Overview

IS&T is migrating email and calendaring data from Exchange Server 2010 to Office 365. Office 365 is an enterprise email, calendaring and notes platform based in the cloud. All your data follows you from device to device without any action required on your part. It's also fully integrated with the rest of the Office 365 applications. The migration is starting with a pilot for IS&T staff.

What should I expect?

Office 365 provides the same email experience for Outlook users on Windows and Mac computers, while improving the user experience on mobile devices and the Web. It also enables various enhancements, including larger mailboxes. Existing email clients should work with O365. You may need to reconfigure them slightly to list your Account as username@mit.edu instead of just username as you may currently. See:

All your contacts, rules and filters should transfer automatically. You should notice little to no difference in your day to day use of email and calendaring. You may find the O365 App has more functionality and is easier to use than your current email client on mobile, but you are not required to switch to it. You can continue to use your current email.

If you have delegates or are a delegate, all of those people must migrate at the same time to maintain those relationships. If you are not all on the same system, you will no longer be able to delegate or serve as a delegate to people on the other system.

Review our Migration Checklist to find out what you should do before, during and after you're migrated to O365.

What's New?

Office 365 puts your email and calendar data in the cloud and closely integrates with OneDrive and other Office applications letting you open Office files directly from your email clients - including Outlook on the Web and the O365 mobile applications.

It also introduces Clutter, a "smart" email filtering system that identifies your personal email reading patterns and deposits messages it thinks aren't important to you in your "Clutter" folder for you to review whenever you get a chance. Some users find it doesn't predict their needs well. For more information on Clutter including how to turn it off, see:
