CruzMail updates campus e-mail
On November 28, the old campus e-mail server, cats-po-1, was
successfully retired. All campus e-mail users who were previously
on cats-po-1 are now on CruzMail, the new enterprise e-mail
According to CruzMail project manager Sara Isenberg, the retirement
of cats-po-1 is an important milestone in the life of the CruzMail
project. CruzMail can now move forward with the rollout of other
new features and enhancements.
In addition to having a more secure and robust infrastructure
than the old e-mail server, the new CruzMail system allows users
to send vacation messages when away from work and to access
their campus e-mail from any web browser, such as when traveling
or working from home. In October and November, additional spam
blocking was put in place, resulting in a great reduction of
spam entering the campus e-mail system.
There is still more work to be done on the CruzMail project.
Some of the future enhancements include additional spam and
virus protection, improved list services, and improved webmail
interface. Other improvements will be oriented toward the protection
and maintenance of the system, including security initiatives
