Save your email messages and folders, contacts and files before you lose access to UBIT services.
If you only have a few email messages you want to keep, forward them to a non-UB email account.
If you have numerous messages or folders of messages you want to save, we recommend copying them to your personally owned computer using an email client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird.
Contact your Department's IT support staff for assistance.
Save email contacts you want to keep so you can import them into a non-UB email account.
If your email is on UBmail for students and you use Google Drive (Google Docs ), you can save your files to a personal storage device.
If you use UBfs Myfiles, you can save your files to a personal storage device.
Before you leave UB, you should move your files to a free OneDrive account. Your UB account has 128 GB of storage, while the free Microsoft account offers 5 GB (Microsoft offers a pay subscription that includes 1 TB of storage). Learn how to take your files with you when you graduate >
Once your UBITName is deactivated, it cannot be reactivated for reasons such as changing an email forward.
If you are eligible to keep your email, such as with graduation, we recommend you do so. If not, if you must use a forward, use an account that you will not lose for any reason -- for example, set up a gmail account.
