Hosted E-Mail Service Raises University's Profile With Its Own Domain Name
The National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway) had an outdated e-mail system for students, which was costly to administer due to high maintenance and support demands. The capacity of individual mailboxes was limited, negatively impacting the ability to send and receive attachments and store messages. The university needed to find a new way to provide e-mail to students. As a large educational institution with a strong sense of national identity, it was important for all university services - including e-mail - to retain the name NUI Galway. Microsoft e-mail service Live@edu met and exceeded all the university's requirements. Its industry-leading solution has saved the university money and helped maintain a sense of community on and off campus.
