Outlook Public Folders Move to Office 365 Email on March 4

Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 14:04


The University began upgrading all faculty and staff to Office 365 Email in fall 2016. Almost all faculty and staff mailboxes have now been upgraded. The final step in the process involves moving Outlook public folders to Office 365 Email. This move will occur during the standard downtime period on Saturday, March 4.

Beginning at 11:00 p.m. on March 4, access to public folders will be unavailable for a few hours while they are being moved. Access to your My Pitt Email will not be affected.

After public folders have been moved, you will see a pop-up notification in your Microsoft Outlook email client. The notification will indicate a change has been made and prompt you to restart Outlook. Please restart Outlook. You may need to restart Outlook twice if the pop-up notification appears a second time.  

For additional details about the move, please refer to our Outlook Public Folders Migration page. Contact the Technology Help Desk at 412-624-HELP [4357] or technology.pitt.edu at any time if you have questions or need assistance.
