I am seeking courageous BlackBerry/NotifyLink users who would like to
become early adopters of a new email server that is being deployed. If
you'd like to participate, continue reading.
Enterprise Technology Services is in the process of updating UVM's
central email server with a newer release of software. This will
provide for faster access to email, multiple simultaneous access to
mail boxes and better searching capabilities. Eventually this will be
systematically rolled out to every email account at UVM. It's
currently in its early phases and some kinks are still being worked out
Early testing has highlighted two issues:
1) During the conversion of your mailbox, NotifyLink removes all (or
most) existing mail from your BlackBerry. Once the conversion is done,
new mail arrives normally.
2) If you use folder subscriptions, you might have to re-subscribe. We
have been working on this bug, and think it's been resolved, but
further testing is necessary before we can confirm it's no longer a
Performing the conversion only takes a couple minutes. If you'd like
to volunteer your account for early adoption, please let me know.
