July 2014 - Eden, Pegasus, Clam email to be turned off

OIT has announced that student email services @eden, @pegasus, and @clam will be decommissioned. As of July 1, 2013 students will not be able to create new email addresses on those systems, and as of July 1, 2014 existing email accounts will be shut down. All students on all campuses will use the @scarletmail mail service instead. (Eden, Pegasus and Clam will still be available for other purposes, only email is affected).

Faculty and staff should consider activating a ScarletMail account too. ScarletMail is a Rutgers-branded version of Google Mail, it includes other services such as Google Documents, Google Calendars, video chat ("hangouts"), etc. By creating a ScarletMail account, faculty and staff will be better able to communicate and work with students using these Google tools. RCI, Andromeda, and Crab accounts will continue to work unchanged, so there is no need to change email address when activating a ScarletMail account.

The OIT announcement is below: 

Decommissioning of Student Campus Email Services (Eden, Pegasus, and Clam)  

What is happening?

The Office of Information Technology will complete its transition to ScarletApps (Google Apps for Education at Rutgers) and decommission student campus email services on Eden, Pegasus and Clam as of July 1, 2014. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are encouraged to visithttp://scarletmail.rutgers.edu as soon as possible and establish access to ScarletApps. ScarletApps provides enhanced communication and collaboration tools, such as Gmail, Drive, Google+, Calendar, which can subscribe to the Rutgers Academic Calendar, and many more. In addition, the ScarletApps services remain in place after graduation or retirement and provide a lifelong connection to the Rutgers community.

What needs to be done?

Students currently using campus email services on Eden, Pegasus or Clam should go to http://scarletmail.rutgers.edu to activate their ScarletApps service.

What is not changing?

Other services currently supported by the campus systems will continue to be available after July 1, 2014.  These services include shell access, programming languages/compilers, web site creation, and departmental and student organizational email services.

How do I get help or more information?

Updates will be posted to http://scarletmail.rutgers.edu and to http://rutgersit.rutgers.edu
