Based upon the Microsoft Exchange architecture, Enterprise Messaging (EM) provides email, calendar, and contacts to your computer, phone, and browser.
EM is funded through the Technology Infrastructure Fee (TIF) and is available to interested departments on an opt-in basis. Departmental IT teams provide first level support for their end users. The service is delivered in a “hybrid” mode, so departments can elect to move to Office 365 and get larger mailbox quotas, OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Web Apps, iOS Apps, and an improved Outlook Web App. The service is used by over 65 Campus departments and hosts over 200 distinct email domains. Skype for Business is also available to interested departments.
