Re: WTF are Canadian universities thinking???

said by lookabird :

UofT switched its student mail to outlook, which is terribly implemented in basically every aspect. That's not to say the in house system before that wasn't equally as bad, if not worse.

Can you elaborate on how it was terribly implemented?

I'm interested to know how anyone with any insight into the old system wouldn't agree that everything is better.

The old mail system wasn't pretty, but it worked... Nightmares with the @mail.utoronto.ca domain include but is not limited to...

-Automatic sorting is wacky
-Kept on marking read emails unread
-Email from a lot of ppl (including known contacts) are going straight to spam
-Calendar loses information randomly
-Mobile sync issue/ push mail problems
-Problem with outlook desktop client (ironically)
-Forwarding doesn't work all the time
-Trash doesn't actually delete, it just stays there
-Cannot cancel the account, and wont give me a new one...
Best of all, UT tech guys have no idea why its so F'd up and can't help me. Thought it was just my computer, but it does the same shit at Robarts library...

Verdict... Outlook based UTMail+ is a PoS!

It was such a pain in the ass that I went back to the old @utoronto.ca email, I was so glad they let me keep that old one.
