Important: Now use mail.misdmail.org to get your MISD mail
Please begin using the Exchange system to send and receive email. All new mail from outside the District is now being routed to your new Exchange account, which you may access using this site:
Login using the following convention:
Username: (FirstnameLastname). If you’re not sure which name was used to create your account, try your preferred one first . . . we’ve attempted to remember or anticipate your preferences.
Password: (Employee ID Number)
Your employee ID number is on your direct deposit slip.
These are the two phases to the migration progress.
During this phase, the Department copies all existing messages, calendar items, and address groups to the Exchange system and your new account.
This is an automated process that is complete for all campuses and many departments. Once this phase is complete, all email from outside the District is routed to the new Exchange account and not to the old GroupWise account. We will be working on the remaining departments during the next few days. Especially large accounts take an especially long time to copy.
Technology Development staff members visit your computer to install and/or configure Microsoft Outlook on your computer, which is part of the Microsoft Office suite. The desktop version of Outlook offers some features that Outlook Web Access (OWA) does not. The goal is to get this installed on all staff computers prior to the beginning of the school year.
Computers that can run Office 2007 will be upgraded to it at this time. A minimum of 512 MB of RAM is required; it doesn’t run well without at least one GB.
If your computer cannot run either Office 2007 or Office 2003, you will need to continue to access your email and calendar using Outlook Web Access (OWA), which involves logging into mail.misdmail.org, indefinitely.
There are tip sheets for Outlook 2007 and 2003 in the Knowledge Base section of Eduphoria. We will also work on getting those posted on the intranet for you. Our licensing for these products don’t allow us to post them somewhere that allows access from outside the district without a password. Update: These tip sheets are available from within the District at intranet.mansfieldisd.org.
