As of Feb. 20, 2008, most McGill staff email addresses ending in @mcgill.ca have been automatically opted into the McGill Anti-Spam Quarantine system, and users have been subscribed to receive the daily quarantine digest.

On Thursday, at around 11:30 am, we encountered a problem with some of our network switches, which are connected to several central servers. When the switches were rebooted, connectivity to the servers was lost, and this may have prevented some users from accessing their emails and network files. The servers and their associated services were restored to normal by 12:15 pm. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced.
WebCT service will be unavailable from 2:15 pm to 2:45 pm.

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.
Earlier problems with the McGill phone system have been resolved and service has been restored to 90 per cent. Some users may still experience a fast busy tone when attempting to make outbound calls. An update will be posted when more information is available.
