Beginning July 31 through August 2, Information Technology Services will be making updates to email accounts across the University of Nebraska system. These updates will set us up for future improvement projects and provide additional security benefits to users.
On Friday, July 31, ITS will be upgrading all faculty, staff and administrative Microsoft accounts at UNK, UNL and UNO from an A3 license to an A5 license. Users can anticipate no downtime and won’t need to take any action to utilize the new license. More information about this upgrade can be found further down this page.
On Sunday, August 2, all Nebraska.edu email mailboxes will be migrated from the current Office 365 email tenant into a new Office 365 tenant that is tied to our new central Active Directory. Beginning Sunday, August 2, at 8 pm, access to your email will be shut off for a period of time while we transition Nebraska.edu into the new Office 365 environment. ITS is planning to have all services available again before 6 am on Monday, August 3.
With this being a full email migration, Outlook will need to be reconfigured on your computer and mobile devices. Instructions on how to reconfigure Outlook on your various devices can be found below.
