The Roundcube email system students use will soon be scrapped and replaced with a more user-friendly email client.
Students' Union President, Abraham Baldry, met with the Director of IT Services, Paul Davies, five times over the last few months.
Abraham highlighted to Paul that the current email client, Roundcube, has provided a number of problems for students, and that a better system would make academic work easier.
The current system, which has been criticised for having a bad interface and numerous error messages, is set to be replaced by Microsoft Outlook 2013, which has been praised for its user-friendly nature.
I have pushed for improvements to Sussex emails since my first meeting with the director of ITservices when I first started the job.
These meetings have been productive, and there are several other announcements that I'm looking forwards to talking about later this month
The new system will be available later this year.
