GO.WUSTL.edu launched Wednesday

| Managing Editor

Undergraduate and graduate students will transition to GO WUSTL e-mail accounts today, though Squirrelmail and other accounts will remain functional for the time being. The new e-mail service run by Windows Live provides online applications similar to Google documents, 25 GB of storage space, Windows Messenger and Outlook Live. While all e-mail will be automatically forwarded to the new e-mail accounts, students who forward WUSTL e-mail to another account will need to set up mail forwarding again. Student Technology Services has already posted resources for students making the transition at go.wustl.edu.

The main change to student e-mail will be the login process. Students can access the new system at outlook.com by entering their WUSTL Key@go.wustl.edu under Windows Live ID tab and then entering their WUSTL Key password.

    I’m not the biggest fan of Outlook, but the new system seems like it’s pretty effective. Google Enterprise would of been another good provider to run the new e-mail service.
