The University has partnered with Microsoft to provide advanced lifelong e-mail, web storage, web applications and software license services for free use by our students, alumni and retirees. The service is called 'PolyU Connect' and it will eventually replace the existing Campus Email and Webmail Service, Alumni Email Forward Service and Retiree GroupWise WebAccess-only Service. The actual date of phasing out the existing services will be announced in due course.
The 'PolyU Connect' service not only provides email service with large storage (10GB) quota for each user, but also provides convenient access to a host of other communication and collaboration services including calendaring, document sharing and editing, instant messaging, video chat, mobile email, web storage (25GB) and a lot more. All these services could be accessed using a new Windows Live ID ( <NetID>@connect.polyu.hk) and the associated password.
