Why We’re Moving to UTmail+
powered by Office 365

For the last few years, we have been working on improving Faculty & Staff communication and collaboration tools. Office 365 offers a variety of tools to facilitate learning, teamwork, and project management for the U of T community.

We’re Replacing UTORexchange and UTORmail

UTORexchange equipment has reached end-of-life, which means 20,000 UTORexchange accounts will be migrated to UTmail+ powered by Office 365. Email and calendaring will remain similar, but come with additional benefits including the following:

  • 50GB mailbox and relatively unlimited archive
  • Available across all devices with better syncronization
  • Better spam and malware protection
  • Skype for Business available for online meetings

Migration Process

The migration to UTmail+ for Faculty & Staff can be divided into three stages.

  1. Migration Preparation
  2. Migration / Implementation
  3. Post-Migration Support
