University IT to move Zimbra email, calendar accounts to Office 365

The University’s IT Services will migrate all Stanford email and calendar accounts currently hosted on Zimbra to Office 365 during the summer.

Current Gmail users, including undergraduates, Law School students and Graduate School of Business students, will not be affected.
