Update 9/20/2021 – Migration to Google Workspace GMail has been completed.
Update 9/10/2021 – All email, contacts and calendars have been migrated. The email migration for staff emails prior to Jan 2020 created a temporary “Archived Mail” label in GMail that contains other labels below it which are duplicates of your original labels. We are in the process of moving the sub-labels under “Archived Mail” to your original location.
We have been working to migrate our email system from Microsoft 365 Outlook to Google Workspace GMail.
We are working to migrate contacts, calendars and emails.
Email addresses will remain as email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
School District users will not have any other domain name as part of their email address (ie: @gmail.com)
As of 7/22/2021 – Email and calendars are migrated from 2/1/2020 – 7/22/2021.
The mail.bentonschools.org link will now send you to Gmail (log in with your school email address and password).
If for any reason, you need to access the old email system (for example to retrieve something that has not migrated), you can do so my going to oldmail.bentonschools.org. You cannot send email from the old email system except to yourself (for forwarding emails to yourself if needed). Emails over 25MB cannot be migrated/transferred, this is a limit imposed by Google.
Students will also begin using Gmail now. Migration of existing contacts, calendars and emails for them will begin soon.
