Information Technology Services (ITS) provides all active students, alumni, and faculty or staff who began work after December 2nd, 2020, with an email account in an environment called SUMail. SUMail is managed by the university and utilizes Microsoft's Office 365 email service. The SU email policy requires that all official university e-mail communications be sent to your @syr.edu email address.
Your SUMail email address is your NetID@syr.edu. For example if your NetID is xyzsmith your SUMail email address would be email@example.com SUMail uses the same password that you set up for your NetID.
To manage your NetID, including passwords management, activation and two-factor authentication, visit http://netid.syr.edu.
