EagleMail Upgrade

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.

Streamlined Interface

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.

Activity Streams

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.

Enhanced Search

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.
