Info You Should Know

* Libraries Closed on Independence Day

UE Libraries will be closed on Independence Day, July 4th. The Libraries will resume regular summer hours on Monday morning, July 7th. 

* UE Email Migration

OTS is currently in the process of moving all mailboxes from our campus servers to Microsoft’s cloud-based service, Office 365. The most significant benefits that we will see include a dramatic reduction in costs and an increase of user mailbox storage space from the standard 700 Megabytes to 50 Gigabytes.

We are planning on moving all mailboxes by July 7. You will be notified by email at least 24 hours in advance of the migration of your email account. 

Outlook Client
Once migrated, you will be prompted to enter your password in Outlook as soon as the transfer is complete. Please note, your username is your full email address. If the username reads “ACENET\username”, you will need to change this to your full email address. At this point, you can enter your username and password and close Outlook (it may prompt you to close). You should then restart Outlook and enter your username and password again if prompted, making sure to check the box to remember your password. Again, your username is your full email address. 

Smart phones and tablets
Smart phones and tablets will need to have the accounts modified or recreated as they will be accessing a different server than what your initial configuration has. If you stop by the help desk after your mailbox has been moved, we will be glad to take care of this for you, or, if you would like to try to set this up on your own, this page will help by giving you the settings you will need;
iPhone-http://ots.evansville.edu/support/telephones/iphoneStudentEmail.asp
Android- http://ots.evansville.edu/support/telephones/androidStudentEmail.asp

Outlook Web Access (OWA)
To access email from your web browser, you will now go to acemail.evansville.edu instead of email.evansville.edu.   After July 7th, http://acemail.evansville.edu and http://email.evansville.edu will be available for webmail access.

We will be staffing the Help Desk phone line (812)-488-2077 for afterhours support starting on Monday, June 30 through July 11t should you have any issues.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact OTS. Also, please let us know if you use more than one mailbox, as those will need to be moved as well. If you experience any problems after the move is complete, please call the help desk at ext. 2077 and someone else will be able to assist you.

Congratulations

* Suzanne Kingsley Nominated by English Heritage for their Angel Award

Harlaxton College has received word of Suzanne Kingsley's nomination for the English Heritage Angel Award, presented to persons who perform extraordinary service in "rescuing" sites important to British and world heritage.  The unexpected nomination was made by Dr. Ben Robinson of the English Heritage staff.

The nomination paper gives details of work over the last decade by the Harlaxton team, beginning with these words:  "Suzanne Kingsley, the wife of the Principal of Harlaxton College, took on the awesome task of implementing a repair programme for the historic features of the site as a voluntary addition to her role in managing college facilities in accordance with student and staff needs. Her inspirational work has required considerable advocacy, drive, leadership, persistence and creativity. Working with a small finance and estate team, she has secured considerable funding from private donors and funding from English Heritage. She has maintained a campaign of refurbishment, restoration and repairs which has seen several vulnerable buildings prevented from entering the 'Heritage at Risk' register and several removed from the 'Heritage at Risk' register, with their futures now secured." 

The nomination cites work on state rooms and residential spaces in the Manor and Carriage House, as well as restoration of the Grade II* listed Lion Terrace, the Grade I listed Schroeder Courtyard, the Grade II listed Gatehouse, the Grade II* listed Walled Garden, Pegasus Tower, "with significant repairs and progress on buildings and structures not individually eligible for inclusion in the English Heritage 'Heritage at Risk' register."  The nomination also notes a restoration programme formulated for the huge and "at risk" gazebos and retaining wall.

Suzanne's response is that "No one does this kind of thing by themselves, but it's nice that Dr. Robinson sees that the College has been and is committed to getting these things done.  Without the grant support of English Heritage and major US donors, Burkley and Sharon McCarthy, and John and Diane Schroeder, we would not have been able to see these projects accomplished.  We have also been fortunate to work with local convservation craftsmen of Skillington Workshop who have added considerable expertise to the restorations.  This kind of success is always about getting the right people together."
