Some errors may occur when performing certain updates on Banner/Minerva this morning. We are currently working on the solution. Your patience is appreciated.
As of February 1, all email clients that are configured to use IMAP or POP (Outlook Express, Eudora, Entourage, etc.) to access McGill email must be using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If you have not yet done so, please configure your email client to support SSL by following the instructions in the IT Knowledge Base article "Configure your email client to access McGill Exchange." Click on "More information" for a direct link to the instructions.
We are experiencing an issue with the anti-spam quarantine website yourspam.mcgill.ca. There are no blocked email messages, possibly due to a corrupt index. Technical experts are working on resolving this problem.
myCourses (WebCT Vista) will be unavailable until 12:01 am tonight due to a technical problem with the integration between Minerva and myCourses. All course data and content will remain intact. The problem is being worked on and we hope to have a resolution shortly. This has no impact on the Summer 2007 term.
Minerva and Banner interfaces will be unavailable from 5 pm, Friday, November 10, to 9 am, Monday, November 13, for purposes of an upgrade to version 7. ICS will be following the upgrade to provide necessary information.
The University portal, myMcGill, is experiencing intermittent problems due to database overload. Users may be denied access to login or receive field errors. Please be patient while the problem is investigated.
Further to our previous announcement, 90% of telephone service has been restored to all McGill buildings in the affected area surrounded by des Pins Ave. W., McTavish St., Docteur-Penfield Ave. and de la Montagne St. NCS is working to have full normal service restored by 17h00 today — or 09h00 tomorrow morning (July 7, 2005) at the very latest. McGill NCS apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates your patience and understanding.
Anti-Spam Quarantine Digest: Email addresses ending in @mcgill.ca will be subscribed on Friday, March 14
As you may know, beginning on February 20, 2008 McGill staff email addresses ending in @mcgill.ca were automatically opted into the McGill Anti-Spam Quarantine system (with the exception of those who had already opted out intentionally). However, subscription to the Quarantine Digest was not done at that time. Faculty and staff who were automatically opted-in will now also be subscribed to receive the digest email on Friday, March 14. The digest email will be delivered once a day, only if messages have been quarantined since the last digest.
There has been a problem with the Exchange server since 6:00 a.m. this morning.
Student mailboxes on the Exchange server have been increased from 100 MB to 200 MB! If you are a student currently using a PO-BOX mailbox you can request that it be migrated to Exchange by submitting an "Email migration request form." Please note that there are plans to decommission the PO-BOX mail server in the near future.
