    Unit 5 email experienced intermittent outages, as well as voice mail issues, earlier this week. Everything has been restored to working order. Unit 5 will begin a process to move away from our current email platform Microsoft Exchange and is instead moving to Gmail. This move is necessary due to the fact that the current Exchange/Version/Server is past its end-of-life and the performance issues continue to mount. The problems this week further reinforce our decision to make this change. The migration is set to begin summer 2016, and will be completed by August 2016. Thank you for patience as we work through these issues.
