Microsoft Exchange Server

If you are a full-time faculty or staff member, you will use Outlook as your primary email client. The Exchange server stores all of a user's email, calendars, contacts, tasks, etc. in one place so that these things are easily accessible from anywhere.

Outlook runs on your machine, but the information is stored on the Exchange server, so even if you go home and check your email, all of your Mail, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks will all be accessible. Exchange provides a archive policy which is passed down to your desktop via group policy. All emails are archived and store locally on the computer every 30 days.

  • Shared Exchanged Calendars: Both parties must have an exchange account to share calendars.
  • Via Outlook Client: Full-time faculty and staff will use Outlook from their office PC's to connect to our Exchange server. This connection should be automatic as long as you are logged into RWJMS network.
  • Access via the web: Click on http://exchange.rutgers.edu or access email via the portal http://myportal.rutgers.edu. When accessing mail from the portal select the mail tab on the upper right hand side.

Large File Transfer Service - LIFT

Central IST has implemented an appliance, operating outside of Rutgers' email environment to support the transfer of large files (over 10MB), between University faculty and staff and their collaborators both internally and external to the Rutgers-RBHS environment. The appliance is Web-based, requires minimal administrative support, and is designed to integrate seamlessly to the university authentication infrastructure.
