CorporateTime (CT) licences will expire at the end of November

CorporateTime (CT) licences will expire at the end of November and will not be renewed. This means that the CT server will be disconnected and access to use of CT will end. For many if not most CT account holders this is not an issue since they have moved from CT to Exchange and the ecalendar features available with Outlook and Outlook Web Access (OWA). If you are one of the few individuals who have yet to move off CT please contact your LAN manager immediately to be scheduled to be moved. Once the licences expire you will lose access to your CT ecalendar information.
