Notes:

  • Important data should NOT be stored within the VM. There is no good mechanism for backing up data stored in the VM itself as standard troubleshooting practices will include downloading a new copy of the Virtual Machine.
  • Microsoft Outlook is provided for Exchange resource administration and complex Exchange calendaring needs.
    Note: The Virtual Machine is configured to disallow the creation of local Outlook email folders, since there is no good mechanism for backups for local Outlook email folders.
  • IS&T recommends Outlook for desktop and mobile use.
