The University of South Dakota email system will be down from 5-9 p.m. July 6 while the university changes email service over to Microsoft Live.
The decision to change email providers came after an evaluation of the current email system.
The change is being made for the benefit of students and staff and will include 10GB of email storage, 7GB of additional online storage and other special features.
With the new email service, users will be able to access email on mobile devices. Students should know that this will change their email addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org.
While addresses will be changing, students will still be able to receive emails through the old addresses and will be able to continue receiving them while they are enrolled as students at USD.
