Students Voting on Design for New Tmail System

KNOXVILLE –- You’ve got mail.

And soon University of Tennessee students will have a new, improved e-mail system. That system will carry a logo which students are choosing in an online survey this week.

When the fall 2006 semester begins, students will use Tmail, an e-mail system that will offer greater functionality and speed than the current Webmail system provides.

“The conversion process will be easy,” said Julie Little, executive director of UT’s Educational Technologies and Innovative Technology Center. “Students will be able to convert all of their e-mails and their address books currently in Webmail to Tmail with the click of a button.”


UT’s Office of Information and Technology is now conducting a survey to choose a design for the new e-mail system. The two design options were created through a contest involving students in UT’s Office of Information Technology.

This week, students received an e-mail introducing them to the new system. In the message, students were directed to click on a button to see the two designs. Voting just takes another click.

See the designs and vote at: http://survey.utk.edu/mrIWeb/mrIWeb.dll?I.Project=TMAILPOLL.

Voting continues through May 5.

The winner will be announced May 8 on UT’s main Web site at http://www.tennessee.edu and on OIT’s Web site at http://oit.utk.edu/exchange.
