On May 16, Red River College is rolling out a new Student Email system (powered by Office 365), which will enable you to access your email, contacts, and calendar from virtually anywhere. Stay in sync and on schedule with Outlook, and coordinate more effectively with classmates and Instructors. The new Student Email will not change how you send email from Learn, but it will provide additional communication enhancements to you. You’ll be sent further information regarding this change to your current student email.
Student Email will not be available from 4pm on Friday, May 13 until 10pm on Sunday, May 15 while the upgrade is completed.
Once the change is complete, students will see a different look and feel, but the general email experience will remain the same. The email addresses for all students will remain as “firstname.lastname@example.org” and all of their mail from the current Student Email system will be transferred into the new system.
Important: If students have set their student email to automatically forward to another email address, they will likely find they have to reset their forwarding in the new email system.
Support documentation for the new mail system will be located at the IT Solutions Blog (https://blogs.rrc.ca/its/help-resources/).
