The CS Department is now mostly completed migrating to the Campus Office365 service. Please see the migration and configuration instructions:
The CSL provides departmental email addresses to all CS users based on their login names. Email sent to these accounts can be accessed via the department IMAP server, via a web interface, or can be forwarded to a separate email address. Mail is backed up by CSL on a nightly basis.
