Eastern Michigan University
This summer, EMU's email service provider is upgrading the EagleMail system to Zimbra 8 (tentatively late July). This required upgrade incorporates a number of email and calendar features designed to improve and enhance the user experience.
Zimbra 8 brings a new, streamlined interface to EagleMail. New features include an updated conversation view and the ability to reply or forward a message from the message itself.
The new activity stream feature assists in prioritizing your email messages by automatically moving less important messages out of your Inbox.
Powerful Search Capabilities
Zimbra 8 also includes improved search capabilities. Search phrases are now recognized as separate search terms which can be combined with conditional operators such as AND, OR or NOT.
Shared Item Tags
The use of Tags has been expanded as well. Tags are no longer limited to personal items and can now be used to categorize items that are shared with other EagleMail users.
Split Calendar View
The addition of a new, split calendar view allows for the simultaneous display of two different calendars.
Suggested Meeting Times
Zimbra 8 makes juggling multiple schedules more manageable by suggesting meeting times when all participants are available.
Text Message Reminder Notifications
The ability to receive reminder notifications as text messages provides additional flexibility as well.
Questions regarding the Zimbra 8 upgrade can be directed to the I.T. Help Desk at 734.487.2120 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
