Emergency maintenance: mail server upgrades

Main fau mailservers  are being incrementally upgraded to fix a bug.   Impact should be minimal as most mail clients will retry and get a working mailserver.   The mail hostnames that may be affected are as follows:    smtp.fau.edu, smtpxy.fau.edu, bertx.fau.edu, berty.fau.edu, boc22esa02.fau.edu, nwesa02.fau.edu

We apologize for the inconvenience.

FYI: Outlook restart prompt for room CM 251 calendar

Users may notice outlook prompting to restart if CM 251 has been opened in the calendars section.  Please restart outlook and let the calendar update.  This is due to the room being moved to Office 365.

 

Thanks,

Systems
