Monticello, NY – You may not have noticed it yet, but every County of Sullivan email address has changed – and that change will become permanent.
“We have gradually moved away from the County’s old domain of ‘co.sullivan.ny.us,’ starting in 2018 with the debut of our redesigned website, sullivanny.us,” explained Information Technology Services Commissioner Lorne Green, whose team oversees, maintains and improves County government’s massive technology infrastructure. “The latest step has been the transition of our email addresses, from [first name].[last name]@co.sullivan.ny.us to [first name].[last name]@sullivanny.us.”
In addition to being easier and shorter to write, the new addresses pave the way for the County to migrate its system from Microsoft Exchange 2010 to Microsoft Exchange 2016.
“My team strives to ensure every piece of technology scattered across our campuses is working as it should – a task that has become even more important (and complicated) during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Green remarked. “Amidst that enormous task, however, we also have to plan for the upgrades and advancements necessary to keep pace with the industry and the kind of services taxpayers expect us to provide.”
The “co.sullivan.ny.us” addresses will continue to accept emails through February 2022, but everyone is encouraged to immediately update their address books to the new “sullivanny.us” domain.
