While the new email program is not tied in with the library I feel the need to try and pass along the word from computer services. Below is an email I received from them today:

~~~~WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT~~~~
You will no longer have a Novell and a GroupWise password. Asitis, if you changed your GroupWise password, your Novell password did not change since it is a separate password. When we move to MCmail, you will only have onepassword for everything. This will make changing passwords and remembering them a bit easier.
On June 1, your currentMCemail account will be deleted. If you want to keep your current emails, it is recommendedthatyou visit https://www.mc.edu/computerservices/kb/articles/article.php?id=40 to find out how to back upyour current emails to upload into your new MCmail account. Once the accounts are deleted onJune 1, emails on the old system will NOT be retrievable, since the old system will be shut down.
Gmail does not have a feature that will allow us to upload our MC address book for all students to access. You will need to use the online address book athttp://www.mc.edu/about/phonebook.phpto look upemail addresses, etc.
