Don't miss important emails

The UvA sends all information about your study programme via email. Check your UvA mailbox or your private email address regularly so you don't miss anything.

When you use Hotmail, Live Mail, MSN Mail or Gmail, emails sent to you by the UvA may sometimes fail to arrive or end up in your spam folder. Check your spam folder regularly and add the UvA to your trusted senders list.

Setting up your email app

You can always access your e-mail though outlook.office.comExternal link in your browser. Check on Microsoft's support pages how to set up the Outlook app (and other Microsoft 365 apps) on your devices. 

POP3 and IMAP do not meet our safety requirements, and are therefore not available.

Sending limit

You can send emails to a maximum of 250 addresses per hour. This can be either in one message with 250 addresses in the To/Cc/Bcc fields, or more messages with fewer recipients. A distribution list or group from the shared address book counts as one recipient. If you exceed this limit, you will not be able to email to addresses outside the UvA for 24 hours. After that period, you can resend saved messages, bearing in mind the sending limit.

Using email after terminating your enrolment

When you deregister as a student, you can use your UvA email address as long as your UvAnetID is still valid. After that, your UvA email account will be closed.
