Help IT Department by Cleaning Your Mailbox
The IT Department is in the process of updating the servers that run the GroupWise email service. Over time, all email customers will be migrated to the new servers. The change will be seamless; no additional changes to your desktop software are required at this time.
In an effort to expedite this change, IT requests that its customers take a moment to perform some early spring cleaning on their mailboxes. If there are messages that are no longer needed or are just taking up space on your account, please delete them or send them to your archive.
If you are unfamiliar with the archive functionality of GroupWise and would like to learn more, contact the Help Desk at extension 3688 or email ITHELP@grcc.edu. Thanks for your help!
