Due to technical problems with one of our servers, users may have experienced problems connecting to the McGill network early this Monday afternoon, February 5, between 13h00 and 14h00. The source of the problem has been identified and resolved, and network connectivity has since been functioning normally.
Mercury, the official name of the McGill online course evaluation system, is replacing MOLE (its former name) throughout the Minerva login site. On June 1, look for Mercury instead of MOLE on Minerva's Student, Faculty and SR administration menus. None of the functionality has changed for this renaming. You should continue to access your course evaluations as before. For the official announcement issued by the Provost on the new name, click on "Details."
Class Photos on Minerva will not be available for the remainder of the day due to technical difficulties.

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.).
