FalconMail Check List


Starting January 31st 2012, all users who have been migrated to the FalconMail System will no longer be able to access their mail located on the BGSU Email System.

  This page will outline the steps those who have been migrated to FalconMail need take before January 31st 2012.  If you are actively receiving mail in both BGSU Email and  FalconMail, you do not need to take these steps.  If you are unsure which category to fall under, consult this list.
