The University of Scranton's new Email system will be "in the cloud." Our community will be changing from the RoyalMail and ThunderBird programs to Outlook Live, part of the Live@edu educational initiative hosted by Microsoft Corporation. Instead of logging into the old system, all users will be able to connect to their Email, Calendar. and Contacts through their favorite browser from any web-enabled device, such as a SmartPhone, Tablet, and computers of all kinds.

SkyDrive is a free Windows Live service that provides 25 GB of password-protected online file storage making it possible to store, access, and share files online with friends or co-workers, from nearly anywhere. When working on group projects, SkyDrive is a great tool to share the materials you're working on — whether you share an office, are down the hall, or live in another time zone. Upload files and grant permission to view or edit them to members of your team or include your teacher or manager in a project by sending a link to your files. SkyDrive makes it easy for them to provide feedback and stay appraised of your team's progress. After editing or reviewing files, team members can upload changes and leave comments from anywhere they have web access.

With SkyDrive, uploading files is as easy as dragging files on your desktop. Select the files you want to upload, drop them on the SkyDrive upload page, and then click Upload. That's it. If you're sharing files with your friends, coworkers, or family, you can make it easy for them to find what they're looking for by simply e-mailing a link. With SkyDrive, you control who can access your files and what they can do with them.
