The LISA offers support for two types of e-mail boxes. These are the following:
- Default e-mailbox;
- Functional e-mailbox.
All students are provided with a Google Apps for Education account with an e-mail address ending with @student.utwente.nl (e.g. email@example.com). The size of this mailbox is 25 GB.
Employees can use a default e-mailbox, including spam filter. LISA is responsible for managing these e-mailboxes. The standard size of the mailbox is 3GB (+3GB archive) for employees. This e-mailbox is linked to the employee himself/herself. With the aid of Outlook WebAccess, the e-mailbox can be used at all computers with an Internet connection and web browser. This software also allows personal digital calendars to be managed. All UT employees' e-mail addresses end as standard with @utwente.nl.
The functional e-mailbox is intended for departments, research groups and other groups who, jointly, have to use an e-mailbox. These are then also registered with the relevant research group or department and is not linked to a specific person. The default ending of all e-mail addresses of a functional e-mailbox is @utwente.nl. The size of a functional e-mailbox is the same as that for employees (1GB + 2GB archive).
The standard e-mail box is automatically created for employees and students. This therefore does not have to be requested. Employees are able to request a larger storage space. To request a larger storage space for the e-mailbox please contact the Service Desk ICT.
A functional e-mail box can be requested using the web form at the bottom of the page. This web form can also be used to change the functional e-mail address and to unload the functional e-mail box.
The following is required if you wish to use either the standard or a functional e-mail box:
- computer with internet connection;
- e-mail program such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird or Postbox or;
- web browser to access the e-mail box through the Internet (xs.utwente.nl).
No delivery time applies to the standard and functional e-mail box. A request for additional storage space will be dealt with within 5 working days.
Access only through the Citadel side entrance at the O&O square.
