When changes occur within the main (Global Address Book) on the Exchange server; computers running Outlook 2007 and 2010 may not automatically receive the updates. When this happens you may be missing new entries, see non-existent entries, or notice incorrect entries. Updating your address book synchronizes the cached Address Book with the Global address book, and may fix instances of mail that is bounced back to the sender.

Please review the lab reservation and usage policy before submitting a request to reserve a lab.

Beginning with the Spring 2015 semester, the ACCC is partnering with the Office of Classroom Scheduling (OCS) to improve the computer lab reservation process.

But it is just an email address; there isn't an email account to go with it. At some point or other, you will have to select an actual email account to receive and manage your NetID@uic.edu email.

Will your NetID@uic.edu email go to your Google Apps at UIC account?

  • By default, POP downloads messages to your computer or device and deletes them from the server. 

ACCC strongly recommends using IMAP:

Service: UICalendar

The lack of direct SyncML sync to iCal on the iPhone is because Apple won't let third party software interact with iCal. Synthesis AG got tired of waiting for this to change, and decided to make their own calendar and task application; Todo+Cal+Sync is the result.

There are only two problems:

Have you been using pine on tigger to manage your uic.edu email?

  • Want to get away from logging in all the time, but still use your trusty pine interface?
  • Want to be able to use pine and still save attachments directly to your personal computer?
  • Want to use pine to read your GoogleApps@UIC email?

You can do all of these things with the personal computer versions of Alpine. (The "pine" on tigger has been the newer Alpine for many years. It's the same thing.)

JOE has the feel of most IBM PC text editors: The key-sequences are reminiscent of WordStar and Turbo-C. JOE has all of the features a UNIX user should expect: full use of termcap/terminfo, excellent screen update optimizations, and all of the UNIX-integration features of VI.
