We offer an email archiving service to academic and support staff in the department. This provides a way to safely store and access large quantities of old email that do not fit in the quota provided by the main University email system.
The archiving system only provides email storage. It does not provide an alternative email address (for that, see Chemistry Mail Domain) or a way to send outgoing email. It uses the standard IMAP protocol so can be set up in most email programs as an extra set of mail folders, allowing dragging and dropping of emails between the archive and your main email accounts. The archive is also accessible via a web interface.
To get an account on the archive system please email email@example.com . The initial quota on the archive system is 10GB but this can be increased if needed.
To access the archive via IMAP point your client at imap.oldmail.ch.cam.ac.uk . Log in with your Admitto username and password.
