PNC is Moving to Outlook

As part of the unification of Purdue North Central and Purdue Calumet, PNC decided to move its email system from Groupwise to Outlook. PNC believes this migration system will bring a better communication and calendaring system and an enhanced integration tool with the other Purdue campuses.

With this in mind, the IS department has prepared this training site inorder to help the faculty and staff acquaint themselves with Outlook before, during and after the migration. As a start, navigate through the Quick Start Guide to get familiar with Outlook. As former GroupWise users, we also urge users to read the Notes to Users section to learn the difference in GroupWise and Outlook functionalities.



Microsoft Outlook 2013 is the new supported email client for PNC and offers best compatibility with Microsoft Exchange. It provides an easy management and search of your emails.
