ICS does not recommend that our users install Service Pack 2 on Windows XP machines at this time. Resolutions to SP2 problems are still being sought.

By the end of January 2008, McGill IST will enforce Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for all on-campus users who have configured their email clients to use IMAP or POP (Outlook Express, Eudora, Entourage, etc.). In early October, SSL was made mandatory for all external clients and affiliates. This new restriction will apply to ALL INTERNAL EMAIL clients as well. See "Details" for instructions.
