All MIIS Students,Exchange email accounts are now available to all students registered for the Spring 2009 semester.
You will soon receive an email, through your FirstClass account, from the MIIS Helpdesk containing your new Banner ID and activation instructions.
You may begin using your account immediately following activation. Please activate your new Exchange email account for use over the summer months so that you do not experience downtime in email service when you return to school this fall.
Students should begin using their Exchange accounts over the summer and should only use the new Exchange (Outlook Web) directory to look up faculty email addresses.
These new Exchange email accounts will replace the current FirstClass email accounts, which will become inactive September 15th, 2009. After this date, you will still be able to access FirstClass and retrieve archived messages, but no new outside mail will be delivered to FirstClass.
After September 15th, all email sent to your @miis.edu address (FirstClass) will be delivered directly to your Exchange email account.
You should temporarily set up forwarding on your FirstClass email account to your new Exchange account, so that you can receive mail from both @miis.edu and @exchange.miis.edu using your Exchange account during the summer.
Students graduating this spring will continue to have access to their new Exchange email accounts for a period of 6 months, which matches Middlebury’s retention policy for graduating students. — If you have any questions once you receive your Banner ID, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 831-647-6512 or by email at [ mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ]email@example.com.
