Q. Can I pick the time of doing this conversion? Do I need to be present or turn over my laptop for your conversion?
All employee email accounts will become active on google gmail on July 22nd and all employees will be able to send and receive emails using the new service.
On the same day, the NEIU employee email application (exchange) will be locked so that employees can no longer send or receive email thru the NEIU exchange server.
Between July 22nd and July 31st, a copy of all employee's inboxes, calendards, contacts, etc (as of July 22nd) will be migrated from the NEIU exchange server to the Google gmail.
Employees will not be able to select or identify when or if they would like their information migrated as employees inboxes, contacts and calendars will be migrated as one group (en-mass) not individually by person.
Employee's laptops or workstations will not need to be reconfigured by the Helpdesk Staff and no appointment will need to be scheduled. Instead, employees will begin using Google's web-based email application directly.
