Enhanced role-based email accounts - June 24

On June 24, 2013, University Systems will begin offering enhanced role-based email accounts.  These email accounts are UVic email addresses that do not require a NetLink ID.  They are ideal for departments, shared email accounts, or conferences.  Each role-based email account will receive an @uvic.ca email address that is not limited to 8-characters in length.  For example, a role-based email account may take the form department.name@uvic.ca.

Each role-based email account is associated with a Microsoft Exchange email and calendaring account that can be accessed by users of your choosing, each using their own NetLink IDs and passwords.  This separate account can be accessed as a shared resource and individual users can be added or removed as needed without the need to share the password to this account.

To request an enhanced role-based email account on/after June 24th, please visit the University Systems website.  Please note that each user who wishes to access this account must have a Microsoft Exchange email and calendaring account.

Information sessions will be held on June 18, 2013 at 11am, and June 19, 2013 at 2pm in Clearihue C030.  Departmental support staff, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.

Additional information about role-based email accounts can be found in the University Systems Service Catalogue.  To request any additional information, please contact the Computer Help Desk.
