A list of Frequently Asked Questions related to the migration effort is being maintained, which will be updated with current information. It contains answers to many of the who, what, why, when, and how questions. If you have additional questions, please send them to help@eecs.
The first step of the process took place Tuesday 6/29/2010, at which time all incoming email began to be routed through the CalMail (MX) servers and then delivered to IRIS. No action was required on your part at that time and there should be no significant impact on email service. There will be some differences in behavior, however, such as additional headers applied by the CalMail Spam servers and a limit imposed on email larger than 50MiB. More detail is in the FAQ.
You will be contacted before any actions are required or taken on your part with respect to the migration of your email. These communications will happen throughout the seven month period.

On September 9, the next step in our migration to CalMail will take place, namely
the activation of the EECS CalMail domain. With this activation, the following
changes should be noted:
* Nothing will be required on your part at this time.
* postmaster@eecs will no longer be the contact for email forwarding. help@eecs will become the contact address for updates to @eecs email forwarding.
* Mail that is tagged as “probable spam” by CalMail will no longer be forwarded.
By this time it will be possible to login to https://calmail.berkeley.edu and view the configuration of your EECS Domain CalMail Account — Please do not modify the configured forwarding at this time, as this is the only mechanism now in place that determines the delivery location of your email. Aside from probable spam, mail will continue to be delivered to your current email server.
Please see the CalMail Migration FAQ for more information.
