Check out enhanced Cherry & White Pages

The Cherry & White Pages, Temple’s online directory, has been enhanced and given a brand new look. The new design displays student, faculty and staff contact information in a sleeker and more streamlined fashion.

In addition to the new design, improvements have been made to directory features. Every employee will now have a Temple phone number displayed. The number can be either your department number or direct line, depending on what you choose to publish globally in the Work section of the Employee Self Service (ESS) Web site.

The advanced search feature has also been expanded. If you search for a name that results in many search hits, the system will now prompt you with advanced search criteria to help narrow the results.

To check out the new Cherry & White Pages, go to http://directory.temple.edu.

To access the Employee Self Service Web site and update your information, go to http://ess.temple.edu.

If you have any questions regarding the new Cherry & White Pages, please contact the Help Desk at 215-204-8000.

E-mail clients must be secured

Just a reminder that if you use an e-mail client to access Temple’s TUmail system, it must now be configured to use the secure version of the IMAP/POP protocol. This ensures that your password and other personal information is encrypted as it travels between Temple’s e-mail system and your computer. An e-mail client is a program such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, Eudora, Mozilla Thunderbird, Macintosh Mail, or Microsoft Entourage.

If you access your e-mail using the TUportal or TUmail Web site, your information is already secure, and you do not need to do anything. Otherwise, if you have not already done so, please take a few moments to review the Computer Services instructions on how to make your e-mail connection secure. Documentation is available on the most frequently used e-mail clients used by Temple employees and students. For instructions, visit http://cs.temple.edu/emailclients and review the secure e-mail access document appropriate for your e-mail client.

If you have any questions or concerns, please send e-mail to help@temple.edu or contact the Help Desk at 215-204-8000.
