FACULTY AND STAFF E-MAIL TO BE TEMPORARILY OFF-LINE THIS WEEKEND

Old Dominion University's Office of Computing and Communications Services (OCCS) announced plans to reconfigure the employee e-mail system over the weekend resulting in a shutdown of faculty and staff accounts from 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, until noon, Sunday, Aug. 5.

Student accounts will not be affected.

The planned interruption is the first in a series of steps being taken by OCCS to add a second e-mail server and divide the academic and administrative users between the two servers. The change is expected to "significantly improve the performance, growth and capacity planning of our e-mail support," said Rusty Waterfield, director of networking and communications.

The process of moving accounts is expected to have minimal impact on the user and will require no server downtime. Complete reconfiguration of Old Dominion's e-mail system is scheduled to be completed before the fall semester begins.
