Cedars-Sinai E-mail System to Change June 16

EIS is upgrading e-mail system servers to Exchange Server 2010 as part of an ongoing effort to provide Cedars-Sinai staff with improved and reliable e-mail services.

What is changing?
On Thursday, June 16, as the first step of transitioning to Exchange 2010, the look and feel of the Outlook Web Access (OWA) log-on page will change.

Why are we doing this?
We are taking steps to ensure that you have a seamless OWA and mobile device experience once your mailbox has been moved to Exchange 2010. As part of this seamless experience, the log-on page has to be moved to Exchange 2010.

What does it mean for you?
The only thing that is changing is the look and feel of the OWA log-on page. The look and feel of the inbox, folders, messages, etc. will remain exactly as it is today.

I can no longer receive e-mail on my phone, what do I do?
Every effort has been made to ensure a smooth event with minimal disruption. However, as an added precaution there will be support staff stationed at North and South Mezzanine Parking Lot lobbies, and Plaza Level near the bridge leading to the Medical Office Towers during the day on June 17 and June 20 to assist you. You can still obtain assistance after hours by e-mailing the HelpdeskEIS@cshs.org or calling (310) 423-6428. Only phones using ActiveSync (Cedars-Sinai issued iPhones/iPads) have any potential for being affected by this change event. Blackberrys will not be impacted.

Is my mailbox being moved to Exchange 2010?
No, this change of the OWA log-on page is a separate step, and your mailbox is not being moved to Exchange 2010 at this time. As your individual mailbox is scheduled to be moved to Exchange 2010, we will reach out to you individually with additional information. For now, the only thing that is changing is the look and feel of OWA log-on page.

What will the log-on page look like?
The before and after comparison of the log-on page is below:

What if I have additional questions?
If you have any additional questions, please e-mail the HelpdeskEIS@cshs.org or call (310) 423-6428.
