After discussion with Executive and consultation with representative faculty and professional staff, the migration date to Office 365 will be on Monday 14 December 2015. This date was identified as the least disruptive time for our community.
From Friday 22 May you will no longer receive daily ‘Quarantine Summary’ emails. Instead, spam will be filtered directly into your Spam folder accessible from within Gmail. Staff are advised to check this folder regularly for any “missing” emails.
There is a scheduled network and system maintenance window on Sunday 24 May 2015 between 5am and 4pm.
Maintenance is being undertaken by Property within the Library, in addition to routine system and software maintenance. As a result we anticipate the following services will be impacted:
- On and off-campus access to most university systems and websites including www.mq.edu.au will be affected by intermittent outages for up to two minutes between 5am and 7am.
- OneNet WiFi access intermittent between 7am and 3pm
- On and off campus access to wiki.mq.edu.au will be unavailable between 7am and 8am.
- On campus access to OneNet Wired, WiFi, Anywhere (VPN) and telephony unavailable between 8am and 12pm in buildings on the west side of campus including C, W, Y and X.
- Off campus access to Gmail will be unaffected.
