Disclosure of Full Service Information

I think for the first time I have just become really pissed at UNCC’s information systems management department. I have had my @uncc.edu email account for over a year now and have been faithfully logging into 49er Express at least once per week. I had never been informed of any way to check that account other than to log in and use the damn web mail console, but now I have run across a document from the college of engineering that states that an IMAP option is availible. I configured it in my client and assumed it wouldn’t function, but it propogated folders and listed all of my mail. Why would UNCC hide this very valueble tool? I can’t believe that this has been hidden from me for over a year.
