Retirement of HKUSUC and HKUSU1 Email Systems

We launched the HKU Connect Email service in 2012 which provides all new students with an HKU email account @connect.hku.hk on the outsourced email platform powered by Google. 

The in-house student email systems HKUSUC and HKUSU1 had been serving students admitted before February 2012. Following their graduations in the last three years, the number of student email accounts remain on these in-house platforms is getting small.  To leverage the benefits of support and operational efficiency of email server consolidation and allow students to enjoy an unlimited disk quota and use of Google applications, ITS started migrating the small number of student email accounts remain on HKUSUC and HKUSU1 to the HKU Connect platform.

The migration of HKUSUC and HKUSU1 accounts has been completed in March and July 2015 respectively and these two student email systems have been retired from service.  All HKU student email accounts are now hosted on the HKU Connect platform.
