New email for UCTGSH1

19 August 2002
INFORMATION and Communication Technology Services (ICTS) is rolling out the new email system across campus, server by server. The Humanities, Bremner and ITS servers have already been converted and the Email@UCT Team are currently working on UCTGSH1. Some users on the UCTGSH1 server have already had their email accounts converted to an IMAP-based email package.

IMAP-based email uses Internet style addressing so this affects the way emails must be addressed. The old address format will fall away. For example, anyone sending an email to the ICTS helpdesk could in the past address the message to either "helpdesk" – if they were on the same server – or "its/helpdesk" if they were sending from another server on campus. Internet-style email addresses will be the only valid method of sending emails to colleagues in future, for example "" or "".
