Sunday Maintenance Reminder

Every Sunday from 12am until 12pm all Systems (e-mail, Banner, wireless, etc.) will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.


Weekly Maintenance – Reminder            

Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off.  This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am.  If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.

  • Tuesday, 3/22 - 1st floor Maria Sanford, all morning
  • Thursday 3/24 – Kaiser Hall, all day

Mac PowerPoint 2016 – Issue with Saving to Network Drives

There is currently an issue with saving PowerPoint 2016 files (Mac) to the network drives (M:/, S:/, etc). If these files are saved on a network drive and a change is made, it will corrupt the file. We strongly recommend that you copy any PowerPoint files to your local hard or a flash drive to use them or work on them. Another work around is to use Keynote. We are investigating a permanent fix for this issue.

Outlook Tip! Understanding the Clutter Feature

The new Clutter feature of Office 365 hosted email moves low priority messages out of your Inbox. The Clutter feature analyzes your email habits, and based on past behavior, it determines the message that you're most likely to ignore and moves them to a special folder named Clutter, where you can review them later. If Clutter wrongly identifies an item, simply move it back to your Inbox folder to teach it not to mark that type of item as Clutter in the future.

You may disable the "Clutter" feature at any time via Outlook Web Mail:

  1. Log in to Office 365 at using      your CCSU email address and current BlueNet password.
  2. Click on Settings (the gear icon in the upper-right      corner)/Options/Mail/Automatic processing/Clutter.
  3. Uncheck "Separate items identified as      Clutter" and click on Save.
