OIT » Email » Email and Calendaring
Clarkson uses Microsoft Exchange 2010 e-mail infrastructure for all faculty, staff and students. This system provides e-mail, spam filtering, personal, group and resource calendars and integrates with our central account information system, Active Directory. Through this system, we fully support MS Outlook 2007 and 2010 clients as well as the web-based Outlook Web App mail client. Also available are secure POP and IMAP access methods.
Why does Clarkson use Exchange?
Clarkson chose Exchange because of its supportability and large user community and support base. For core services and systems, Clarkson strives to use modern, current technology that has matured to a degree that it can be relied upon to service our basic IT needs and functions.
Why have we upgraded to Exchange 2010?
Exchange 2010 is the current version of the product. It has added many useful features on the server and systems management side, as well as support for resource calendars and a greatly improved web-based client. The resource calendar system will enable Clarkson to streamline room reservations for individuals, groups and classes on campus, as well as provide financial savings that can be redirected into other areas of technology.
The upgrade of Exchange to this new version directly addresses areas of three goals within the Draft IT Strategic Plan.
- settings for Outlook, POP and IMAP clients
Project Communications to Campus
