Campus faculty/staff e-mail emergency upgrade

The University e-mail system for faculty and staff will receive an emergency upgrade at midnight tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 22). The action comes at the request of Microsoft, which has reported a problem that could cause the system to lock up.

The system should be down for only 30-60 minutes. No e-mails will be lost during the upgrade.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions or concerns, please notify the OIT HelpDesk at 817-272-2208 or

Please note that this temporary suspension of service only affects the faculty/staff e-mail system. It does NOT affect the student e-mail system maintained by Microsoft itself.
