The upgrade from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010 is taking place during the month of July. When Information Technology rolled out Exchange, we promised cross-platform webmail. It's here with Exchange 2010! Webmail will be the same whether on a Mac or Windows machine, at home or work.
June 30th - July 15th Students mailboxes move
July 19th - August 1st Faculty and staff mailboxes move
The mailboxes will move on a rolling basis, five at a time. You will know that you are on Exchange 2010 when you login to https://webmail.bowdoin.edu and see the new Webmail interface. The URL address will contain "webmail.bowdoin.edu" rather than "webmail07.bowdoin.edu".
Yes! Outlook, Entourage, Thunderbird, Apple, Eudora and Pine will work with Exchange 2010. Entourage users who have not yet upgraded to Entourage Web Services, will need to do so.
Webmail is so improved, you may find it easier than your current email client, especially for those who access email from home or on the road. Try it out!
Empty your trash. (Right click on the "Deleted Items" folder and select "Empty your Deleted Items.")
You can set up your email client to do this automatically by following these steps.
Given the variety of email clients and versions that people on campus use, we are posting any known issues and resolutions below.
Issue: I am getting a 404 error (File not Found) when I access a shared email or calendar account from Webmail
Resolution: While the email and calendar accounts are being moved, follow these temporary instructions.
Issue: I am using Outlook from home or a non-Bowdoin computer and get an error message reading "Unable to open your default e-mail folders" or "The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable."
Resolution: Change the encryption setting in Outlook with these instructions.
