Every computer on a network has a unique identifier. Just as you would address a letter to send in the mail, computers use the unique identifier to send data to specific computers on a network. Most networks today, including all computers on the Internet, use the TCP/IP protocol as the standard for how to communicate on the network.

ACCC email addresses, accounts, and services are available to current UIC students, staff, and faculty.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer unlimited periods of account access or email forwarding.
