As of July 2020, all UvA students have a UvA mailbox on the Microsoft 365 platform at their disposal.
Each UvA student has their own UvA e-mail address on the Microsoft 365 platform. You can log on to Microsoft 365 and will always receive e-mails from the UvA at this UvA e-mail address. As an additional service, the e-mails you receive in your UvA mailbox are automatically forwarded to the e-mail address you submitted as your correspondence address in Studielink. If you are happy with this, no further action is required. If you want to disable this e-mail forwarding, go to your account settings and select my details. This will allow you to separate study-related e-mails from your personal e-mail.
Many students had a UvA e-mail address already, as well as a mailbox in G-Suite. In July 2020 this mailbox was moved from G-Suite to Microsoft 365. Existing e-mail addresses remained the same. All e-mails, calendars and contacts have been transferred to the new 50 GB mailbox in Microsoft 365.
G Suite will remain available as an archive until 31 December 2020. If you want to save files that are located in G Suite, you need to transfer them to Microsoft 365 yourself before 31 December 2020, using this manual.
You can use the following software to read your e-mails:
|Desktops/laptops||Mobile phones/tablets||Internet browsers|
|Outlook 2016 and above||Outlook Mobile iOS||Chrome|
|Outlook for Mac 2016 and above||Outlook Mobile Android||MS Edge|
Exchange ActiveSync in iOS 11 and above
|MS Internet Explorer 11|
N.B. Other software may work, but is not officially supported.
You can e-mail a maximum of 250 addresses per hour. This can be one message with 250 addresses in the to/cc/bcc, or multiple messages with fewer recipients. A distribution list or group from the shared address book counts as one addressee. If you go over the limit you get a "Message delayed" message and you can no longer mail. Retained messages are automatically sent when the limit has passed. After that you can just mail again.
Installing e-mail on your mobile devices is easy. Just follow these instructions.
