The new official centralized university-wide email and calendar service, based on Microsoft Office 365, is called Rutgers Connect. This single email and calendaring system will effectively improve communications, collaboration and scheduling across the community as part of the President’s Strategic Plan. This cloud service includes email, calendaring, and many other services including 1 terabyte of general storage and 50 gigabytes for email per person. All current university faculty and staff email services will be migrated to Rutgers Connect. A migration partner has been hired to assist OIT with this project. Starting in January 2016 and over the next several months work will proceed to migrate all departmental email to this new service. For more details on this new service, please see: http://oit.rutgers.edu/connect.
Current email options include the following :

The service can be activated at netid.rutgers.edu by clicking on “Service Activation.” The ScarletApps suite provides additional enhanced communication and collaboration tools, such as Drive, Google+, Calendar, and others. Alumni and retirees can continue to use ScarletApps services forever, providing a lifelong link to the many resources available to the Rutgers community. ScarletMail can be accessed at scarletmail.rutgers.edu or via the myRutgers portal.
