WMU email is migrating to W-Exchange spring 2016
January 28, 2016
Early in 2015 the University was informed that our email provider was discontinuing its email services. A committee comprised of WMU students, faculty and staff was formed to seek a new product. Their recommendation, Office 365, was presented to, and approved by, the Information Technology Executive Advisory Board in September, 2015. A WMU marketing team has branded our new email as W-Exchange and migration of all WMU accounts to W-Exchange will take place during spring 2016 semester. Migration information is available on the migration website, with some information yet to be finalized.
