This page outlines the E-mail offering that UMIACS provides.
===Introduction===
 
  
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]]

==UMIACS E-mail Offerings==

A UMIACS account includes a username@umiacs.umd.edu e-mail address. If you are a University of Maryland employee, this address is required to forward to your directoryid@umd.edu e-mail address. If you are not a University of Maryland employee, you can forward this address to an external email provider. (e.g. gmail, yahoo, etc.)
  
Alternatively if you already have a Email provider you like we offer the ability to forward your Email.
+
If you previously had a UMIACS Exchange or IMAP mailbox prior to the Division of IT-mandated [[EmailMigration | email migration]] in June 2020 and would like a copy of the archive of your mailbox we made, please [[HelpDesk | contact staff]].
  
You can update your Email preference through our [https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu/chinfo Directory Profile] Tool.

==Spam Firewalls==
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.

UMIACS has deployed spam firewalls into our mail infrastructure to provide additional virus and spam filtering capabilities.

The link for the Exchange web interface is https://exchange.umiacs.umd.edu/owa.  It is also on the front page of our intranet site (https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu).  Please note that the web interface works best in IE.
 
 
 
===[[IMAPEmail|IMAP Email]]===
 
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.
