Your unclassified (state.gov) and classified (state.sgov.gov)
computer accounts must be moved from your current bureau/post
to Manila. This process involves your current bureau/post,
State, and Manila, and can take several days to complete.
You must take
certain steps before departing to allow the process to begin,
otherwise the process cannot begin until you arrive in
Manila, and you will spend your first several days here
without computer accounts.

Your accounts cannot be moved if your mailboxes have too many
emails. It is imperative that your emails be pared down as
much as possible before you depart your current bureau/post,
and your email addresses be removed from distribution lists.

Please contact your current IRM/IM sections for details and
advice. POCs in Manila are:

Manila ISC Support Desk (on OpenNet) for unclassified

Manila IPC Helpdesk (on ClassNet) for classified accounts.
