Employee email overview
The University's official email system operates on a Microsoft Exchange environment. Exchange provides an email service usually accessed via Outlook or Outlook Web App (OWA). Exchange also offers other tools such as:
- meeting organizer
- task management
- contact information storage
- access to shared mailboxes, public folders, and address books.
Some of these components have features that will only function when accessed with the Outlook program.
MSO Exchange email accounts for employees have account names in the following form: firstname.lastname@example.org (i.e. email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org).
In order to obtain an MSO Exchange email account, employees need to complete an Individual Computer Account Request Form. This form is in MS Word and PDF format (for completing/downloading/printing). Hard copies are available at IT Central in Social Science 120, 243-HELP (x4357).
Further information about MSO Exchange and client configurations is available on our Exchange 2010 web page.
In addition to obtaining an email account, employees must obtain a University email alias. Please go to the Umontana alias web page for further information.
