Guidelines for the ateneo.edu Mail System

The new mail system is on the e-mail server, mail.ateneo.edu, and will host new user accounts under the ateneo.edu domain.

It is intended as an upgrade and replacement for accounts of Ateneo de Manila University employees hosted on pusit.admu.edu.ph, which will still be maintained as the mail server for the rest of the Loyola Heights campus community.
