Outlook365 email migration

All Capilanou.ca employee email accounts have now been upgraded from the current Exchange environment to the Microsoft Office 365 environment.

Some additional benefits of this migration are:

  • Individual mailbox storage will increase from 2 GB to 100 GB.
  • A large package of Office apps can be accessed online and downloaded to your devices.
  • 1 TB of OneDrive storage.
  • Increased email stability, access and security.

Tip: if you're getting an error receiving mail to your existing capilanou.ca email account you've probably been migrated to Outlook365 and should remove your existing account.
