Note: We recommend using the Global Address List as your default address book.

If you open the Microsoft Office Outlook Address Book and do not see the name or e-mail address you are looking for, you might need to choose another address book from the Address Book list. If you find yourself choosing another address book frequently, you can change the default address book that is displayed when you open the Address Book.

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.

The ACCC provides a personal University email address to all current students, staff and faculty.

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an Internet protocol that email programs use to look up contact information from a server. The ACCC runs an LDAP server named ldap.uic.edu that you can use to look up the names and email addresses of people using NetID@uic.edu email addresses; you c

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:

Service: Basic Email

Most new staff and faculty, and almost all new students do not have a Basic Email account. Staff, please see Exchange Online, students see UIC GoogleApps.

Setting up a new account with Thunderbird is easy; you give Thunderbird your name, email address, and password. Thunderbird then looks up the  connection details (such as ports, server names, security protocols, etc.) in its database. It knows about ACCC Basic email accounts and about mail.uic.edu, the email server that you use to connect to your ACCC Basic email account.

ACCC email addresses, accounts, and services are available to current UIC students, staff, and faculty. When class registration or employment at UIC ceases, access to uic.edu email addresses and ACCC email accounts and computing resources is extended for a grace period to allow time for transition to a new email provider. Unfortunately, we cannot offer unlimited periods of account access or email forwarding.

Personal email addresses at UIC are of the form NetID@uic.edu.

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 University of Illinois has provided an easy to use tool that uses a email notifications along with a Web site that allows you to securely send files to that anyone with a University of Illinois Enterprise ID and password. That is everyone at any campus of the University, these days -- faculty and staff must have them for Positive Time Reporting and other administrative tasks and students use them for registration. The tool is called PEAR, Protected E-Mail Attachment Repository Application.
