Preparing for Office 365 migration;Incoming and outgoing messages limited to 25MB

Incoming and outgoing messages limited to 25MB

As of Friday, April 11, 2014 pantherLINK email messages were limited to 25MB including attachments. This change was necessary to prepare for the planned migration to Microsoft Office 365 later this summer. When a message larger than 25MB enters pantherLINK’s environment, the sender will now receive this reply:

“The following message to <xxxx@uwm.edu> was undeliverable…Message size exceeds fixed limit’ ”

To prepare your inbox for the migration visit the Office 365 web site for instructions or register for one of UWM Learning TECHniques’ free workshops where you’ll learn how to:

  • Manage old messages over 25 MB that won’t migrate;
  • Delete unwanted email and email folders;
  • Empty the trash;
  • Archive information that you will need later;
  • Get help!

The Office 365 site features information about the project, a link to course offerings and more.  Need help with campus technology? Contact the UWM Help Desk at 414-229-4040, toll-free at 877-891-3459 or use the online form at GetTechHelp.uwm.edu.
