Migration of Physics Email to Nexus

The decision to run down the Physics departmental email service and to use the University Nexus system instead was taken some years ago but the department had to wait until the system could provide sufficient storage to absorb our existing mailboxes. Nexus is now about to move into a cloud based service known as Nexus 365 which has a number of benefits, not least significantly larger mailbox storage which will enable that process. You can find out more about Nexus 365, including FAQ, here.
