to pick Mulberry
the new e-mail program that replaces Simeon, is now available
and can be downloaded from ITC's Software Central Web site, http://www.itc.virginia.edu/central/.
The new cross-platform, full-featured electronic mail program
is free to all students, faculty and staff for as long as they
are affiliated with the University, and may be used either on
or off Grounds. It will be bundled with all new DCI computers
ordered after June 1.
Help with Mulberry installation and set-up, including a Quick
Start guide and a tutorial, are available at http://www.itc.virginia.edu/desktop/email/mulberry/.
ITC's Departmental Computing Support staff will provide training
or an in-house demonstration upon departmental request via e-mail
at firstname.lastname@example.org. Users can also get assistance from
the ITC Computing Help Desk at 924-3731.
Most current Simeon users should be able to migrate to Mulberry
without difficulty. Those who have Simeon mail folders stored
on their own computers rather than the mail server will need to
move the messages in those local folders to the server in order
for Mulberry to access them. ITC has temporarily increased all
users' quotas on the Central Mail Service (CMS) in order to accommodate
the migration process.
A substantial permanent increase of all CMS user quotas will be
announced in the fall. For information on migrating local Simeon
folders to Mulberry, see the Mulberry Web site.
Mulberry is replacing Simeon, because the latter is no longer
being developed by its vendor, Esys Corp. Simeon will be supported
by ITC and be available on Software Central at least through summer
2002, providing it continues to work with the University's mail
