Changing your preferred email address

Most UVic emails, including emails from instructors, will be sent to your preferred email address. Unless you have specified otherwise, your UVic email address will likely be your preferred email address. Preferred email addresses can be changed through UVic My Page.

Change your preferred email address by following these steps:

  1. Login to UVic with your NetLink ID and password.
  2. Click on Personal profile located underneath your name on the left hand side of the screen.

  3. Select Update preferred email address.

  4. If you wish to change an address, click on the address that you wish to change
  5. If you wish to add an address, select Contact Email Address from the drop-down list and click Submit. Before you can make a newly added address your preferred address, you must first change your current preferred address.

If you experience any difficulties after adding or changing email addresses, try deleting all of the addresses you have listed and adding them again, ensuring that you add your preferred address first.

If your preferred email address is not your UVic address, you will be unable to access your UVic email account through uSource. To access your UVic account online, you will have login to the WebMail system.

Alternatively, you can have your UVic address as your preferred email address and set up mail forwarding to a different address.
