Campus webmail to be upgraded on June 19th

This will not affect UMBC Google mail (Gmail) users

June 16, 2014 1:36 PM

On Thursday, June 19th at 7am, DoIT will be performing an upgrade of the campus webmail environment for our dedicated Cyrus mail servers. The current webmail environment is out of date on both the hardware and software. There will be a brief outage to transition to the new server and no data will be lost during this upgrade.  Anyone logged into webmail prior to 7am will need to restart their browser and login again once the upgrade is completed.  Users of Cyrus webmail will notice a more refined interface with new colors as well as some icons that have shifted location.  

Anyone wishing to try out the new Cyrus webmail environment is encouraged to login at If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Technology Support Center at x53838.

Note: This campus webmail upgrade will not impact users who have migrated their email to Google.
