ETS now provides a service based on the Google Workspace platform, which meets the needs of customers of the Connect service. We have replaced the Microsoft Office365 platform with Google Workspace Education for email & calendaring.

If you haven't used Google Workspace Apps, either personally or at a previous job, we recommend you review our guide on usability differences between Google Workspace Mail and traditional email services.
