Heelmail – Office365 Email and Calendaring
The UNC-Chapel Hill Office365 Email and Calendaring Service provides a cloud-based, feature-rich email and calendar service with support for fully featured Outlook clients on MAC and Windows along with support for older IMAP-based email clients, such as Thunderbird. A web client is also provided at https://heelmail.unc.edu. In addition to email and calendaring, Exchange also provides a campus address book, a system for managing tasks and many other features.
Heelmail is managed by Microsoft in the cloud. It offers a 50 GB mailbox compared to the 2GB mailbox in the on-campus Exchange Service, which the University manages and funds. It also offers a much richer security tool set and rich integration with the all the other Office 365 tools.
