Cornell E-Mail servers are disabling port 80
On Monday, 08-May-2017, the CIT E-mail Team are disabling port 80 in their on-premises Exchange environment because it presents a security risk to some clients. This might impact some old E-mail clients. Please call the CIT help desk at (607) 255-5500 if this change causes problems for you. If this change breaks E-mail clients for a significant number of people, they will back the change out and reevaluate.
General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter
and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L
, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM
, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations
