Mail Upgrade


Hi everyone,

Here’s an update on the mail server upgrade:


  • The new server is up and running.
  • You WILL need to delete and re-add your account to your iPhone / iPad – see instructions below!
  • Office users:  I’ve got most of you up and running, but for about 20 of you I’ll need to get with you Monday morning to get access to your computers.  This is a quick process.
  • Old Mail, Calendar, Contacts:  Again none of these items are lost, we just have to transfer them from the old server to the new.  We are still working on this part and will continue through the weekend.

Thanks for your patience today!  If you have any problems please feel free to text me at 804-337-1634 and I’ll respond back as soon as I am able.
