Retirement of Staff Email System - hkucc.hku.hk

The central server hkucc.hku.hk supporting staff email has been retired in April 2017 after the hardware has been in service for over a decade.  

In the past 8 months, we assisted more than 1,700 staff and retirees to migrate their email accounts from this ageing system to prepare for its retirement.  After this migration exercise, all staff email accounts are now hosting on a unified single platform hkucc1.hku.hk running Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. 

All staff members are advised to use yourUID@hku.hk or your_email_alias@hku.hk for communication which is not only an email address having a direct representation of the University but also easier to remember by their contacts.  As we understand that the domain name hkucc.hku.hk has been used for more than 20 years, to ensure staff can continue receiving emails sent to their previous email address @hkucc.hku.hk, the email forwarding function of HKUCC accounts will be kept until they leave the University.
