IFAS E-mail address standardization workshop 8/11/05:
Courtesy of Dwight Jesseman...
The objectives of the proposed process:
**This item cannot be fully realized without a mandate which administration is unable to provide
There will be two basic types of users:
Both types (see table below) will have SMTP:GL@ufl.edu...
It was hoped that a new "Exchange Mailbox" relationship could be added to PeopleSoft so directory coordinators could control the automatic creation of an Exchange mailbox for an individual. This would support other Exchange organizations outside IFAS as well. Again, this cannot be automated if anyone choses to check GL and IFAS e-mail separately. Also, such "OPT-outs" would prevent the easy use of RUS to automatically correct e-mail addresses should GL name changes occur with the upcoming increase in the allowed username length.
Opt-out whereby someone will be able to check e-mail separately at GL and IFAS is planned to be allowed, but is not going to be part of the original change. Those wanting that will have to complain once the change is made before that capability will be re-configured. Such users will have continuing e-mail delivery oddities whereby official IFAS e-mail will be delivered to GL.
There is some concern that failure to automate the GL forwarding will cause problems for GL administrators who might then insist that all SMTP be smarthosted through them. This could be used to justify removal of any opt-outs, should those occur. If opt-outs do not occur, we can go ahead with the automation plans.
