Description:

A routing issue prevented email delivery to some alumni from 9am-3pm EDT on Sunday, October 19. The issue resulted from changes that were part of this weekend's directory upgrade. The issue is now resolved.

Current Status:

The number of alumni affected who do not forward their Cornell email to another account (and as a result may have missed some messages sent to them) appears to be fairly small. Technicians are working on identifying who falls into this group in order to contact them directly and provide details.

Microsoft reports that some individuals are unable to use Windows Media Player to stream .mp4 or .mov videos hosted on SharePoint Online. Using a different player or downloading may help, or host the video in Cornell’s Video On Demand Service.

Using a different player or downloading the video may help, or it is also possible to host the video in Cornell’s Video On Demand Service ( http://www.it.cornell.edu/services/vod/ )and embed it in a SharePoint Online site.
