Rutgers Connect Communications
CRITICAL: Group 11 users please test your login to Rutgers Connect
Email accounts for users in Migration Group 11 have now been created in Rutgers Connect so it's time for everyone to make sure they can login.
Please test logging in to Rutgers Connect using the following page:
If you don't know your domain please login to the migration database here: https://secure.sas.rutgers.edu/apps/ruconnect_migration and use the address you see under 'Your Rutgers Connect login will be:'
Your password will be your NetID password.
The first time you login you will be asked to choose your default Time Zone. Please do so.
If you already have an account on Rutgers Connect and your address is being moved into a new domain, you will not be able to use the new address until after the cutover on 9/11. If you can login to your existing account then you're all read to go.
If you would like to test mobile access you can also configure your phone using the documentation here:
If you choose to test mobile access be aware that you will be required to agree to a mobile management policy. This policy is required for all users of Rutgers Connect and has only two requirements. The first is that your phone must have some type of lock, whether that be a PIN, swipe, fingerprint, etc. Second, is the ability for Rutgers Connect to remote wipe your device. A remote wipe on the device will only be performed on user request.
Depending on the phone, operating system and vendor, you may have to install an app on your phone to allow the mobile management policy to work. When installing this app, it will list everything that the app is able to do, not what Rutgers Connect is configured to do. Regardless of what the app says, only the two policies above will be active.
If you do not wish to agree to a mobile management policy on your device, you can use Rutgers Connect using your devices web browser. The system has a very capable mobile management interface.
Please do not do anything else in the new account at this time. The accounts are not set to receive mail so you cannot test them beyond making sure you can login.
We have begun copying mail so please don't make any changes to your existing mailbox folder names or structure from this point forward. You can continue to file, delete and send messages as you always have until the actual cutover.
The actual cutover will take place on Monday 9/11 When you check your mail on 9/11, you'll need to either login using the method specified above or reconfigure your mail client using the instructions that can be found here:
IT staff will be available both locally and remotely to assist users with any issues that might arise. Administrative staff Windows workstations that use Novell will have an icon that will reconfigure the system for you.
Once the cutover takes place, the ability to send and receive messages on the old mail server will be disabled. The mail server will remain online so you can view the mail that is there.
If you are interested in attending training, an announcement about in person training will be sent soon. You can also view the online training materials using the following links:
