About Imail & Umail
- Student Umail - Powered by Google
- Student Imail - Powered by Microsoft (UITS is preparing to retire the Imail service, so users can no longer create new Imail accounts. Current users are not affected at this time, and will be given at least six months' notice before Imail is discontinued.)
I'm currently on Imail. Can I Switch Mail Systems?
Yes. If you have Imail, you can create a Umail account at the Account Management website.
IU Southeast faculty and staff should not use Umail or Imail for official IU Southeast business.
Accessing your IU Southeast Email
Access your email account by clicking the Email link on the IU Southeast homepage or access your account directly via the web:
Exchange Web Access
If you need integrated messaging features such as a shared departmental calendar, an Exchange account may be appropriate. Exchange accounts are available for staff and faculty. For more, see Exchange accounts.
You may access your Exchange account as follows:
- You can reach your Exchange mail from anywhere by using the Outlook Web App (OWA) site.
- If you usually read mail from a desktop computer connected to the campus network, you can use Outlook with an Exchange account to manage your mail, calendar, meeting arrangements, resource reservations, contacts, tasks, and to-do lists. See Setting up Outlook 2010 or 2007 to read your IU Exchange mail.
- To configure an IMAP client program, such as Outlook Express, Entourage, or Thunderbird, to retrieve mail from the Exchange server, see Reading your Exchange mail using a desktop email client.
