and mail also accessible through Roundcube

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

During the weekend of November 12, 13 and 14, the ISC will move the mail of from the old RU Share service to the new RU Exchange service. This can be accessed with a browser via RU Exchange webmail, but also via C&CZ Roundcube webmail, by choosing in the drop-down menu. Advantages of Roundcube are that you can set multiple sender addresses (via Settings->Identities) and that the Science LDAP addressbook is available, which contains all Science staff and students. The RU Exchange AD address book has very little FNWI scientific staff. Furthermore Roundcube has a more powerful and modern interface independent of the browser used. You can also leave out the extra RU\ before the U- or S-number when logging in. A disadvantage w.r.t. the standard Outlook Web Access might be that Roundcube does not have calendar support, it is only an IMAP mailclient.
