What is happening? Use of the @edu.uwaterloo.ca student email domain will be discontinued. Student email domains will return to the @uwaterloo.ca domain.
Why is this happening? The recommendation to move students and employees to a single email domain (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) was an outcome of a review of the current email environment that was conducted as part of the project to investigate moving Waterloo employee email to the Office 365 cloud environment.
What is the impact? All Waterloo students and employees will use the @uwaterloo.ca email domain.
What are the benefits? A common email domain will allow for:
Improved collaboration between students and employees using Office 365 apps
Simplified troubleshooting and support processes
Clarification and simplification of login processes for systems used by both students and employees (e.g. LEARN, Quest)
When is this change taking place? The change is tentatively scheduled to take place in April 2020.
What is happening? Exchange servers are being removed from service for maintenance/updates. Individual servers will be taken out of service between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. each night throughout the maintenance period.
When is it happening? Thursday, September 12 to Friday, September 27 - between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m. each night.
Why is it happening? To keep the software current with vendor-provided updates.
Who will it impact? Users that are actively connected to a server when it is removed for maintenance may be prompted to enter their username and password. Outlook may also alert about being redirected to autodiscover.uwaterloo.ca. This is normal behavior and the user should click 'Allow' when this happens. No other impact is anticipated as the remaining servers will continue to carry out email and calendar functions.
