Hi Kent,

I will be a "guinea pig" if you still need some.  If it's going to happen anyway, I might as well learn it before everyone else in my department.  Then I can help them when they have to be rolled over.

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 and monitored.

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 possible issue.

Performing the conversion only takes a couple minutes.  If you'd like to volunteer your account for early adoption, please let me know.
