Move email from EECS/SDC email ➜ WSU Email

(Step 3 of EECS / SDC ➜ WSU Mail series)

  • Step 1 (EECS/SDC Email ➜ WSU Email Transition) here
  • Step 2 (Move actual emails from EECS / SDC ➜ WSU Mail) here
  • Step 3 (This article...)
  • Step 4 (optional) (Import Contacts from EECS / SDC ➜ WSU) here

This article will walk you through the steps required to import your current @eecs.wsu.edu or @sdc.wsu.edu Zimbra calendar to your @wsu.edu Office 365 account
  • After you've completed the steps in this article, you should schedule all new calendar events on your @wsu.edu calendar.
    • New events scheduled on your EECS or SDC calendar will not be transferred over...

While not explicitly required, it is highly recommended that you complete Step 1 of this process (here) to stop receiving mail at EECS / SDC before following this tutorial! Step 2 is optional, and does not have to be completed before following these steps.

  1. First, we need to determine the proper URL to export your calendar from Zimbra.
    • For EECS, that URL should be: https://mail.eecs.wsu.edu/home/your_eecs_username_here/calendar?fmt=ics 
      • For example, if your EECS email account is ffaculty@eecs.wsu.edu, your link would be: https://mail.eecs.wsu.edu/home/ffaculty/calendar?fmt=ics
    • For SDC, that URL should be: https://mail.sdc.wsu.edu/home/your_sdc_username_here/calendar?fmt=ics 
      • For example, if your SDC email account is fred.faculty@sdc.wsu.edu, your link would be https://mail.sdc.wsu.edu/home/fred.faculty/calendar?fmt=ics 
  2. Once you've got the link for your profile, open a web browser, and navigate to the address you determined in Step 1, and log in using the appropriate credentials. We'll be using Google Chrome in this article, but any modern browser will work. We'll also be using EECS as our example throughout this article.
    You should see a screen like the one below asking for log in. Once you've logged in, your web browser should download a file called calendar.ics. We'll use that file later...
    If you have trouble logging in, please send us an email at support@vcea.wsu.edu or call the VCEA Helpdesk at (509) 335-6773






     
  3. Navigate to email.wsu.edu, and log in using your WSU Network ID and password.



     
  4. Once you've logged into your WSU Office 365 account, click on the calendar icon near the bottom left of the screen.



     
  5. From the calendar screen, first click on the Add calendar button, then select From file...



     
  6. Select the calendar.ics file that you downloaded during steps 1-2, and choose a calendar you would like to import it into.
    Click Save at the top of the import window.

Congratulations! You've successfully imported your EECS or SDC calendar into Office 365.
