EMAIL MIGRATION

Starting November 23, 2018, Mays will migrate to the Texas A&M centralized email system known as TAMU Exchange. All new Mays email will start being delivered to TAMU’s Exchange server beginning November 23, 2018 after 9 a.m. and should finish by 8 a.m. Monday, November 26. Old/existing email will be migrated from our server to TAMU Exchange server. Your existing Mays email will automatically appear in your TAMU Exchange mailbox as your mailbox is migrated during this time.

You will need to make connections to the new server (computer and mobile devices) using these directions. NOTE: You can always use the TAMU Exchange Outlook Web Access (https://exchange.tamu.edu) to access your email at any time using your <netid>@tamu.edu as your login and your netid password as your password.

If you need help, call Mays IT at 979.847.4357 starting November 26, 2018.
