UPDATED June 29, 2016
Migration for email services on the Camden campus began on June 20, 2016 with the first batch of accounts migrating from the crab mail server. On June 27, 2016 all accounts on the camlink (Exchange) mail server were migrated to Rutgers Connect. On June 30, 2016 all remaining crab mail server accounts will be migrated to Rutgers Connect. If you have been migrated to Rutgers Connect, the last message delivered to your crab or camlink account will be a system message telling you that migration of your account has completed. At that point you should be able to log in to https://connect.rutgers.edu using your domain-qualified NetID (firstname.lastname@example.org). You must include the mail domain during Rutgers Connect log in, or it will not work. If Rutgers Connect isn’t accepting your password, the first thing you should try is changing your password at https://netid.rutgers.edu in order to force a synchronization of your login credentials. OIT Camden Help Desk staff are available to assist with login or migration issues, as well as questions about the Rutgers Connect web client. RCIT Help Desk staff will be assisting with the reconfiguration of desktop and mobile mail programs that you may use with Rutgers Connect.
On Monday, May 16, 2016, a message was sent from Chancellor Haddon to all Rutgers University–Camden faculty and staff regarding the university-wide transition to the Rutgers Connect system. Rutgers Connect is a Rutgers implementation of the cloud-based email, calendar, application, and storage system provided by Microsoft Office 365. Our campus is scheduled to begin migration in mid-June.
The request by Chancellor Haddon for anyone who has not changed their Rutgers password since January 1, 2016, to do so now is an important step in the preparation for Rutgers Connect. In order for the cloud-based service to properly synchronize with Rutgers’ authentication system, anyone who hasn’t changed their NetID password since January 1, 2016, must now do so. NetID password changes can be accomplished using the “Manage NetID Password” tool, located on the left-hand menu of https://netid.rutgers.edu.
If you have any questions about the migration to Rutgers Connect, please do not hesitate to speak with the Help Desk or with your department’s desktop IT support staff. Online resources are also available for more information, including training, at https://oit.rutgers.edu/connect.
