In & Outboxes are network folders on the server called 'Files' for faculty and students to share and transfer files. These boxes are set up for professors who have requested them. They are created automatically for academic departments and by request for other campus departments.
Inboxes & Outboxes are a legacy service thus new faculty and staff are not receiving them. They are a very difficult technology for students to use and cit strongly recommends they not be used for receiving or distributing files to students.
Before you Start
The Inbox is a "drop box" where students have write-only access and can deposit assignments and projects.
Faculty can read all files in their inbox. Note: Students need to use the Virtual Private Networking (VPN) to connect to the inboxes from off-campus. On campus, students must be on the encrypted wireless network (eduroam). A computer that is only on the Geneseo Guest wireless network will not be able to access the Inboxes.
The Outbox is a place for faculty to place files that can be read by the students, but not modified or deleted.
Everyone who has a Geneseo account can read these files and they should be treated as public files.
