Faculty/Staff Email Information
I'm a new faculty or staff member. When will I receive my email account?
Once all the paperwork has been filled out with Human Resources, the IT department will create the account.
Staff, including graduate assistants, information is sent to the department head and administrative assistant.
Part time faculty information is either emailed or send via USPS to the home address, depending on whether or not an alternative email address was given.
Full time faculty information is both emailed to their alternative email address and sent to their department on campus.
Is there a limit to the size of the email I can send or receive through my PC email account?
There is a size limit of 25 MB for emails sent or received through your email account. This includes the body of the email and any attachments.
Is there a limit to the size of my mailbox?
There is a 2 GB quota on faculty and staff mailboxes. This includes messages in your Sent Items and Deleted Items. To free up more space, you should regularly clean up old messages in all your mail folders, including Sent Items. You shoudl also regularly empty your Deleted Items.
I would like to create a message notifying people that I will not be checking my email. How can I do that?
In the Outlook Web App, you can click on Options on the upper right hand side of the screen and choose "Set automatic replies". Be sure to click Save at the bottom right when you are finished.
In Microsoft Outlook for Windows, you can click on File and then the Automatic Replies button.
In Microsoft Outlook for MacOS, you can click on the Tools menu and choose Out of Office.
Why won't my email username and password work?
Your password is set to expire every 90 days. You should receive warnings via email when your password is about to expire. When you see these, you should change your password immediately. If you do not change your pasword before it expires, you will not be able to access your email until you have your password reset by the Helpdesk.
