An university-wide change is approaching: The actual mail system of the RWTH Aachen University will be updated. Therefore the actual Exchange 2010 migrates to the surroundings of the Exchange server 2013.

 

Benefit

The new surrounding offers an actual system interface, making the handling with mobile devices more comfortable. Furthermore the process becomes safer, has a more stable state and offers a better starting point for students and employees of the RWTH Aachen University.

Transitional phase

The relocation of the email-box starts at the 29th September and is realized in several steps. In this time there are different scenarios: The login to the Outlook Web App (OWA) will have the new logon screen but the forwarding is different depending on the status (migrated or not migrated). That means:

  • If the email-box is already migrated, you will be redirected (after the login with the new logon screen) to the new Outlook Web App (Exchange 2013 Surrounding).
  • If the email-box is not migrated, you will be redirected (after the login with the new logon screen) to the old Outlook Web App (Exchange 2010 Surrounding).

During the transitional phase you have unqualified access to your email-box, but restrictions are possible. For more information about the change of the email-system and features, please follow the link: FAQ´s
