Chemistry O365 migration -- Complete successfully!

We have completed handing over our MX records to the Office 365. This final step completes our email migration to Office 365. Alchemy (our previous mail server) has been shut down for the mailing services. The Department will no longer be running its own mail server, and alchemy will be retired from our DNS records. Anyone requesting 'alchemy' as a DNS name will most likely be denied. 

We will hold on to the backup copies of emails on alchemy for one (1) year, after which, for security reasons, we will delete the backup email copies.

If you wish for us to delete your files sooner, please let us know. If you wish to get a copy of the files, please let us know.

This migration project took us nearly 1.5 years to finish. We would like to thank everyone for your patience, cooperation, and understanding.
