Umontana alias

In addition to obtaining an email account, employees obtain a University email address in the form of a Umontana alias. This alias will be used as the official means of electronic communication between employees and the University. Important University business is conducted via this account including UM business-related information and announcements from the President to employees of UM.

This alias is generated in the following form: Firstname.Lastname@umontana.edu

Activating your Umontana alias

To initiate an official Umontana email alias, you need to indicate in CyberBear which email account you prefer to receive official email. A nightly process will activate the umontana alias and point it to the email account you indicated. 

To activate your umontana alias, log in to Cyberbear:

  • Click on Personal Information.
  • Click on Manage Email Accounts.
  • Under Umontana Alias, if you have already entered a preferred email account, your Umontana alias will display.

You can view, insert and update your email account(s) under Your work/personal Email Account(s). If you do not see your email account, you will need to enter this information. University employees may only list an official email account (e.g. sally.example@mso.umt.edu). If you have questions about your email account, please contact your departmental IT administrator or IT Central at 243-HELP.

In order to activate the email account you entered, click in the box next to the entry, and then click the Submit button. (Note: You may return to Manage Emails anytime you need to add or remove an email account.)

A screen will display indicating that your changes were successful.
