When you're going to be away from your email for an extended period of time, you can use the auto-reply filter to automatically respond to your incoming email to inform senders that you're away, when you'll be back, and perhaps let them know who they can get in touch with for help while you're gone. 

Your UIC email address is in the form netid@uic.edu, where 'netid' is your UIC NetID. This is an email forwarding address, not an actual email account. In order to be used, netid@uic.edu must forward to an actual email account, which for most people will be a UIC email account managed by ACCC.

For students, faculty, and staff, your netid@uic.edu email must route to a UIC email account. The only exceptions to this policy apply to the following special cases:

Google Groups cannot have calendars of their own, but you can create a subcalendar in your GoogleApps@UIC account for the group and share that with your group:

Everyone at UIC has a UIC email address of the form: NetID@uic.edu. For Ada Byron, whose student NetID is abyron1, this is: abyron1@uic.eduThis is an important email address, because all official UIC email will be sent to it. But it is just an email address; there isn't an email account to go with it. At some point or other, you will have to select an actual email account to receive and manage your NetID@uic.edu email.

Will your NetID@uic.edu email go to your Google Apps at UIC account?

POP and IMAP are two different protocols, or ways of accessing your email account. The main difference between them is that:

  • By default, IMAP stores messages on the server.
  • By default, POP downloads messages to your computer or device and deletes them from the server. 

ACCC strongly recommends using IMAP:

The ACCC runs an LDAP server that you can use to look up the names and email addresses of people with NetID@uic.edu email addresses. This page explains how to use this LDAP server with Outlook 2010 and 2007.

Have you been using pine on tigger to manage your uic.edu email?

  • Want to get away from logging in all the time, but still use your trusty pine interface?
  • Want to be able to use pine and still save attachments directly to your personal computer?
  • Want to use pine to read your GoogleApps@UIC email?

You can do all of these things with the personal computer versions of Alpine. (The "pine" on tigger has been the newer Alpine for many years. It's the same thing.)

Closing a GoogleApps@UIC session is a two step process. You must do both.
