During the hours of 9PM to 7AM IDSG will move as many users as possible from the old server to the new one.
We will begin with the users that have the smaller mailboxes. Users that are moved will be notified that the move is done.
You should check your mailbox expire settings at: https://webmail.EECS.Berkeley.EDU:442 to make sure they are correct.
What you might experience:
If your mailbox is in the process of being moved, you will not be able to read mail. You will logged out if you are logged in when the move starts for you and you will not be able to login again until the move is complete. The move process can take from 1 minute to more than an hour (for mailboxes that have several GB of mail).
The plan is to move the large mailboxes beginning Friday the 8th at 9PM through Monday the 11th at 7AM. Those users will be contacted in a separate e-mail so they can be more prepared. Unfortunately, we will not be able to give an exact time for any of the moves.
IDSG wishes to express our gratitude for your patience during the last few weeks while we sort out this problem.

1050 of 1400 users have been migrated to the new IMAP server. All users less than 700MB and with more than 10GB have been moved. Most of users between 2.5GB and 10GB have been moved. Those users with 700MB to 2.5GB have not yet been moved.
Migration of all users should be complete by Wednesday morning.
All users seem to be seeing much better performance, both those that migrated and those remaining on the significantly less loaded original server. Please let help@eecs know if you are seeing any additional delays.
