Eight days left before old mail server shuts down

Date Published: July 30, 2014

For the past year, CCIT has worked to retire its legacy mail server. The mail.clemson.edu server, also known as “Clemson mail” or “Squirrel mail,” will be permanently shut down Aug. 12.

Most university employees are already on the Exchange server. This has no impact on those who use Exchange. But for employees who still use mail.clemson.edu to access email, it’s time to upgrade to Exchange.

Contact your local computer support representative:

  1. if you need to upgrade to Exchange,
  2. if you use Exchange or g.clemson.edu but have mail stored in mail.clemson.edu, or
  3. If you are using Exchange or g.clemson.edu or any other mail program, but still have forwarding to mail.clemson.edu. Visit http://www.clemson.edu/ccit/email_forwarding/ to check your email forwarding first.

Once the legacy mail.clemson.edu server shuts down, any mail stored there can no longer be accessed. Accordingly. CCIT advises that any mail stored in that server be removed by August 11.
