Staff and faculty are given official email accounts in Exchange. Microsoft Outlook, which is available on computers within SU's Active Directory domain, is most commonly used to manage Exchange accounts. Web-based acccess to Exchange accounts is also available at: exchange.syr.edu.
Some departmental units and colleges may also offer email accounts for faculty and staff -- check with your department's computing support staff to see what option works best for you.
Faculty and staff who redirect their official syr.edu email account to another address (ex: @hotmail.com), do so at their own risk. Redirection can be accomplished by setting up a rule within Outlook.
