The University has two email systems Sun Microsystems ‘Webmail’ and Microsoft Exchange. By default all undergraduate students have access to the webmail system. PhD Candidates and staff as well as webmail also have an Exchange account created for them.
The following changes will occur to your email if you previously accessed a webmail account as an undergraduate student:
When your Exchange account is created a forward will need to be setup in ‘Webmail’ to redirect all incoming email from ‘Webmail’ to the Exchange account. This can be done by following the instructions in the following document www.utas.edu.au/servicedesk/helpsheet/forwards.pdf. Once this forward is in place you will automatically be redirected to the Microsoft Exchange system when logging in online.
An Exchange account can also be accessed through Microsoft Outlook this however is entirely optional. For instructions on setting this up please follow the Setting up Outlook to Connect to Microsoft Exchange document. www.utas.edu.au/servicedesk/helpsheet/outlooksetup.pdf.
N.B. Old email that was in the webmail system as an undergraduate student will not be moved across to your Exchange account automatically. If the mail in the webmail system is required then you will need to manually migrate the email across by following this document www.utas.edu.au/servicedesk/helpsheet/migrate.pdf .
