Information Technology Services (ITS) provides a Syracuse University branded email account in SUMail. SUMail is managed by the university and utilizes Microsoft's Office 365 email service. The SU email policy requires that all official university email communications be sent to your @syr.edu email address.

SUMail uses the same password that you set up for your NetID. To manage your NetID, including password management, activation and two-factor authentication, visit http://netid.syr.edu.

Preparing Exchange for SUMail

If you received an email indicating you need to configure your Exchange account in preparation for migration to SUMail, we recommend simply removing your account from the device and reconfiguring the account using the steps below. This will be necessary on all email applications on mobile devices pre-migration and on macOS devices post-migration. Configuring your email account with your full email address will properly prepare you for your account's migration. More migration details are available on the Exchange Email Migration to SUMail page.
