Network Engineering provides a fee-based Microsoft Exchange mailbox hosting service to approximately 5,000 users campus-wide. This service includes:
Permissions are delegated to the Department Computer Administrator (DCA), who is responsible for all account and mailbox administration and user support. DCAs have access to a full-time Exchange support person for help with everything from configuring clients to troubleshooting mail delivery problems.
We charge $2 per mailbox/month for mailboxes set to the default "prohibit send" limit. Current default limits are:
Mailboxes set to a higher quota are billed an additional $2 per 1,000MB (1GB) increment of the default "prohibit send" limit, e.g. a 2GB mailbox costs $4/month, a 3GB mailbox costs $6/month, and so on.
Resource mailboxes with a quota of 100MB are free.
We also provide access to the FS_Mail domain for groups who wish to use Exchange but do not maintain their own Active Directory domain. There is no charge for FS_Mail accounts.
Please note: Network Engineering does not provide account administration - that task is delegated to the DCA for the department. If your department does not have a person to manage account and mailbox administration and support, you should consider using the Community Network service.
