The UW is modernizing its email services, which will involve retiring Deskmail, Alpine and Pine by Dec. 31, 2018. The goals are to provide modern tools, to facilitate compliance and to protect sensitive data. The two email options, UW Exchange Online and UW Gmail, will be limited to current UW community members. Retirees and UW alumni will no longer have access to these services — with some exceptions, including emeriti faculty. UW-IT will offer online resources and migration tools to help users upgrade their services.
