New version of EVault mail archiving software - upgrade the MS Outlook plug-in now


A new release of EVault (version 9), the email storage and archiving software, is now available for McGill faculty, staff and  affiliates.  Administrative computers in units that have a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with ICS, will be upgraded automatically over the next two weeks.

For units that do not have an SLA with ICS, IT Administrators may install the plug-in on computers within their unit, or individual users will have to install the new version themselves (contact your IT System Administrator if you are not sure).

If you use MS Outlook on your home computer to access McGill email, you may also install the latest version of the plug-in, depending on the version of MS Outlook you are running.

For instructions and a link to download the new version, go to the IT Knowledge Base article, “Install the Outlook plug-in for EVault”.

Note: The new version of EVault is only supported for MS Outlook version 2003 with service pack 2 or Outlook 2007.  If you are running an older version of MS Outlook we encourage you to upgrade.  Full-time faculty and staff can order MS Office (with Outlook) for home use through the Microsoft Campus Agreement (Work at Home program).

If you have any questions or need help with the upgrade, please contact the ICS Service Desk ( [at] at 514-398-3398.
