12/8/2015 – Kingdom Officer Email Access – All Platforms

INFORMATIONAL NOTIFICATION

From:

The East Kingdom Webministry

INFORMATIONAL  NOTIFICATION

Unto the Officers of the East Kingdom, Greetings.

This notification is being published to document the situation below.

Recently the East Kingdom began the migration of email forwards to email boxes in order to better support the Kingdom in all ways regarding communication.

All Officer emails should be migrated by January 1st, 2016.

It has been a staggered release, spanning several months of preparation, testing and bringing individual Offices over one at a time to help facilitate the process of adjusting to this new working environment.

The initial setup of http://mail.eastkingdom.org was for a stable, in house email service accessible from the internet. This has been established.

An email was sent to every Kingdom Officer and Kingdom Webminister with detailed information. A copy of the main email can be found here: http://webminister.eastkingdom.org/index-6/kingdom-officer-email-box-transition/

Since the initial installation the Webministry has been able to add the following additional options to expand the email service:

  • Change Password – Users can now change the password from within the mailbox without requesting assistance from the Webminister.
  • IMAP AccessA very heavily requested option is now openly available to all Officers. Please follow the steps provided here for reference:  http://webminister.eastkingdom.org/index-6/kingdom-officer-email-access-all-platforms/
  • New Message Notification – Notification from the Server is available. You must have the mailbox open in a tab in a browser to get the notifications. Configuration is found under Settings.
  • Filter Messages into Folders – Newly added to the server, you are able to do so under Settings.
  • Mark As Junk – There is a button on the main task list available to have emails marked as SPAM and moved to the Junk folder.

We are planning more expansions to the Email Service, and will bring them online after full testing and verification they work is performed.

For example, a Global Address Book with all emails is being worked on.

We are looking into expanding the SPAM filter to accept the emails you mark as junk to help build a better experience.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we set up a new service for the Kingdom.

As always, if you have any additional questions; concerns; or information regarding the above, or any current events, please do not hesitate to contact the Webministry at helpdesk@eastkingdom.org or through the Support Center at http://helpdesk.eastkingdom.org website.

In Service to the East Kingdom,

The Webministry
