Monday, January 11, 2016: MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 HAS ARRIVED
The University of Maryland School of Medicine Office of Information Services is beginning to roll out Office 365. We will do this in phases and communicate with you frequently. In phase one, Exchange Online and Skype for Business will be made available to those with an existing @som.umaryland.edu email accounts. The Exchange (Outlook) online benefits include an increase in the standard mailbox size from 2 GB to 50 GB, an updated look and enhanced capabilities within Outlook Web Access (https://mail.som.umaryland.edu). Skype for Business provides a way for you to connect with co-workers via Instant Messaging, video conference, and document sharing and collaborating. We’re really excited about this change, and hope you’ll like it!
This project will be ongoing through 2016. We will be contacting you via email 7 days before your migration will take place with more details on the email migration and how to begin using Skype for Business. In the meantime, see our Office 365 web page (please link to that new page) for information about Office 365 Exchange/Outlook and Skype for Business. Check back frequently for information on additional Office 365 features that will become available beyond phase one of this project.
