  • Changes to Hulbert and Vogel Lab Scheduling

  • Changes to departmental mailboxes – 9/4/2018

    WSU Information Technology Services (ITS) is in the process of completing the conversion of Departmental Mailboxes into Shared Mailboxes, a required step for WSU after the Office 365 migration.  Shared Mailboxes, like Departmental Mailboxes, are mail accounts not tied to an individual.  However, permissions for Shared Mailboxes are administered centrally, and those with access will automatically see their Shared Mailbox appear in their Outlook and Office 365 (office365.wsu.edu).

    The conversion of Department Mailboxes has been postponed from Thursday, August 16 to Tuesday, September 4th.  The current owner of the Departmental Mail account will automatically be granted access to the converted Shared Mailbox.  If additional individuals … » More …

  • New email list manager

    Introduction to Dada Mail – Video Primer

    On 1/13/18 CAHNRS IT retired the Lyris email list manager, and stood up a replacement list manager called Dada Mail.  The primary reason to retire Lyris was due to increasing costs.  While Lyris had been increasing in cost year over year for some time, the most recent renewal, a 300% increase, was untenable.  Despite the short time frame, we decided the best course of action was to retire Lyris and begin testing alternatives.  After installing and testing PHPlist, Dada Mail, and Group Server, it was determined that Dada Mail provided the functionality most used by CAHNRS mailing … » More …
