On July 20, the campus began automatically migrating campus email lists and archives to Sympa from the old service, Listproc. As of July 26, about 10 percent of the lists had moved. Information and Educational Technology moves about 250 lists each weekday afternoon, so the 4,900 lists still on Listproc should be migrated to Sympa by approximately Aug. 20.

IET is migrating the lists in alphabetical order.

Last week, IET compiled answers to the most common questions that email list owners are asking after their lists are migrated. The IT Express Computing Services Help Desk is fielding an average of one to two migration questions each weekday.
