Migration of Staff Email Platform from Microsoft Exchange to Google Gmail

Following recent endorsement by the IT Committee, staff email platform is to be migrated from Microsoft Exchange to Google Gmail within AY2016/17 to take advantage of the unlimited storage offered and the promising opportunities for productivity enhancement and collaboration with the applications available on the cloud.

Actual system migration is scheduled to begin in late September 2016. While ITO will perform mass migration of email and calendar items on the backend, our staff will also help individual users to set up their PCs to work properly with the new backend system. Starting early September, ITO will make contact with departments/offices to come up with the backend migration dates as well as with individual users to confirm appointments for PC setup.

Please stay tuned as we move along with our migration schedule with individual departments/offices.

Should you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact our Service Call Centre at 3411-7899, or email to hotline@hkbu.edu.hk.

Thank you for your kind attention.
