Large Email Attachments Service was Upgraded

On Friday, October 28, 2012, Information Technology will be upgrading the Accellion system to a newer version. Accellion allows you to send large attachments up to 20 Gb through a web-based email client located at or through an Outlook plug-in.

How will the new version work?

The upgraded version, which operates in a similar way as the existing system, will be more secure and reliable for users. It will also allow IT to combine the copier scan attachments system, which emails a link to scanned images created by the Canon copiers and the large attachments system into one.
