Upgrade of the webmail interface for Hermes on Wednesday 8 January

last modified Jan 06, 2020 11:16 AM
The webmail interface for Hermes ( will be unavailable for a short time between 07:15 and 07:45 on Wednesday 8 January 2020 while we upgrade the underlying software to a newer version.

Users who are logged in during this period will be automatically disconnected and will need to log in again. Hermes users who access their email via a different app and Exchange Online users will be unaffected.

Once the upgrade is complete, users will have the option to select a responsive theme that is designed to give a better experience on mobile devices.
