Homework to Prepare you for the Migration We recommend waiting to do any major "house cleaning" in your inbox (mass deletions of , etc.) until after you migrate. If you would like to do so before hand, please do so at least a week ahead of your migration date (if not farther ahead of time). This is to ensure that all deleted does not reappear in your inbox after the migration due to the final sync.
On Migration Day You will begin using your new at 8am on the day of your migration. Any previous forwarding setting will be automatically changed for you at 8am. Continue to login to your computer with your UWB credentials. Running off to a meeting? Sick at home? You will be able to check your online starting at 8am via https://outlook.com/uw.edu https://outlook.com/uw.edu
On Migration Day Stop sending from your UWB account after 8am Visit: and click the golden button for migration day instructions.www.uwb.edu/office365 That morning, Outlook may tell you something is wrong. You could see this message on a PC : This is normal. Just click “ok” and Outlook will automatically close. If you do not see this dialog box, close Outlook anyway.
On Migration Day After closing Outlook, create a new Outlook profile for your UW account on each PC computer you use (desktops, laptops) before reopening Outlook For PCs, creating a new profile is different than adding an account. Be sure to create a new profile and not add an account. When using a Mac, you will be "adding an account", as profiles do not exist for Mac. Add an account on each Mac you use.
On Migration Day After you’ve created your new profile (or account for Macs), you can open Outlook. It will prompt you to login again. Use your address and password You will see all your from your UWB inbox and all new, incoming mail Please note it may take a few minutes for your inbox to completely populate.
On Migration Day Reconfigure Outlook with shared calendars resource mailboxes to add a newly migrated resource mailbox, you must know the shared NetID password delegates RSS feeds Notes and Drafts Updating your address in your signatures (if applicable)
On Migration Day Configure UW accounts on mobile devices (Phones, Tablets) and delete your UWB accounts from mobile devices. View public folders through mail.uwb.edu and login with your UWB account information (standard procedure until the entire campus has migrated)
