New Email Server and Software
will be upgrading the email server and the server software that
delivers email to and from campus over Memorial Day weekend. The new
server will have double the processor speed and quadruple (4x) times
the disc space, allowing for immediate speed improvements and room to
grow over time.
In order to bring the new server live and upgrade the software,
email service will not be available from Friday
May 28 at 5 pm until Sunday May 30 at approximately 8 pm.
Email sent to TCNJ accounts during this weekend should be
delivered when the new system is active. However, depending on the

According to our test results, end users will notice little difference
besides increased speed. All of your existing e-mail and folders that
are currently stored on the server will be copied over as is, but you
may find that some messages you have already read are marked as new.
As part of a separate project, Information Technology will be
upgrading the standard email client installed on College owned
machines from Netscape 4.7 to Thunderbird. More information on this
upgrade will be available during the summer.

What is SAL?
(Software from Any Location) is an application launcher that allows
faculty, staff, and students to use software programs right from their
desktop that were previously only available in the computer labs.
What type of software
is available through SAL?
Campus standard software such as Internet Explorer, MeetingMaker, QWS3270 +
(mainframe access), and
Adobe Reader. SAL also has specialized software for different departments.
I’m interested – how do I get SAL?
SAL is only available on -campus. To use SAL, you must be logged into
Novell and running Windows 95, 98, XP, or 2000. Click on the ‘Start’
button. From the Start menu click on the icon for SAL Applications. A
ZEN Works Application Launcher window will appear on your screen for a
few seconds. SAL will then open up. Note: If you do not have SAL
Applications listed in your Start menu, click on the ‘Start’ button,
select Run. In the ’Open’ box, type: z:/nal.exe and hit enter.
How do I find software in SAL?
The SAL window is split in two. The left side of the window contains
folders where the software is located. To display the folders, you may
have to click on a + sign next to the TCNJ tree. The right side of the
window contains the program icons. The first time you select a program
from the SAL Application window, files will be downloaded to your
computer that will enable you to run that program. Most programs are
installed directly on your computer’s hard drive, however some
applications will only run through SAL.
If you experience problems running a SAL application from your computer,
open up SAL, right click on the application name, and select verify.
This will download any required files again (as if it were the first
time) and should correct most problems. If you still experience
problems, contact the Help Desk at X2660.
If you are having problems opening SAL: Verify you are logged into the
network. If you are, try rebooting your computer. If you still
experience problems, contact the Help Desk x2660.
