On Tuesday, 04-Feb-2020, starting at 10:00 AM, the ScreenConnect service will be unavailable for up to one hour for a server upgrade.

Public Service Announcement: Shutdown of (outgoing mail)

The Cornell IT Service Desk has announced that the AuthSMTP service ( is being gradually turned off over the next three weeks. Affected users have been notified repeatedly by email. In most cases, anyone who loses the ability to send mail as a result of this change can restore it by changing the setting in their email app from to for faculty and staff, or for students or alumni. If you need assistance with this migration, please contact the Cornell IT Service Desk (not CLASSE-IT).

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
