Employee Retirement Guides

Microsoft Exchange email accounts are a free service offered by BYU to it's full-time employees. When an employee retires, the university begins to be charged for their email account. For this reason retired employees are encouraged to migrate (copy and move) their email from their old Exchange account to another email service. We recommend using Gmail as it is a widely used and highly effective email service. Below we have created walk-through guides to help you move from using Exchange to Gmail. It is recommended to go through each article sequentially to have the best experience migrating to Gmail.
