==UMIACS E-mail Offerings==
 +
A UMIACS account may include a username@umiacs.umd.edu e-mail address.  There are 3 possible options for where that mail can be sent:
 +
; [[Email/Exchange | Exchange Mailbox ]]
 +
: Ideal for those accustomed with Microsoft Outlook and/or need a shared calendar.
 +
; [[Email/IMAP | IMAP Mailbox ]]
 +
: A simple multi-platform way of reading your mail.
 +
; Forward
 +
: Redirect any mail sent to your <i>username@umiacs.umd.edu</i> address to an external e-mail provider. (e.g. gmail, yahoo, etc)
  
Depending on the environment you'll be working in, you have two primary choices for mail. You can decide on our PC based solution Microsoft Exchange or a [[UNIXEmail|IMAP Email]] solution. Both provide scanning for Virus and Spam through our [[BarracudaSpamFirewall|Barracuda Spam Firewall]]

{{Note | You can update your E-mail preference through our [https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu/chinfo Directory Profile] Tool.}}
  
Alternatively if you already have a Email provider you like we offer the ability to forward your Email.

===Microsoft Exchange Email===
 
If you are accustomed with Microsoft Outlook and/or need a shared calendar then we offer the UMIACS Exchange service.  If you work primarily on a PC, collaborate with primarily PC-based users, expect to email MIME attachments or just feel most comfortable with a PC based mail solution, the exchange mailserver is likely the best solution for you.  Among other things, it also supports IMAP, vacation (auto-response) and virus filtering capabilities.

Our IMAP service is available as a simple multi-platform way of reading your mail.  It provides powerful server-side mail filtering and vacation support.  You can configure you own IMAP client (see below for a list of supported clients) or use our [[Webmail]] server to read your email.
