Using Email at UTAS

All current students and staff at UTAS have access to electronic mail (email). UTAS email accounts are automatically created when a person first enrols or is appointed to the staff.

What you need to know

To use your university email account you need to know three pieces of information:

  • your pop account name
  • your password
  • your return email address.

For staff, this information is available through your school or faculty computing support staff. For students, your pop account and password are printed on your Enrolment Statement & Fees Invoice. Email details are also available from the Service Desk, bring your University Staff or Student ID card as proof of identity.

  • Staff return email addresses are of the form: Firstname.Surname@utas.edu.au or F.Surname@utas.edu.au
  • Student return email addresses are of the form: popaccount@postoffice.utas.edu.au.

Learning more about email

Information sheets on email are available from the Service Desk. Training courses can be organised through the Service Desk.

Forwarding email

Please be aware that IT Services recommends against forwarding university email to external email addresses.

Email is not considered a secure means for transferring information due to the ease with which potentially confidential information may be intercepted, read or misdirected. IT Services cannot be responsible for the security of emails, address books, or personal information residing in external email accounts or on privately owned computers, and so recommends that where possible staff and students make use of the email and computing facilities provided by the University.
