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.

Any user who is granted the Full Access permission on a shared mailbox can edit the mailbox's auto reply settings by following these steps:

2. Click the "Organize Email" option on the left, then the "Automatic Replies" option at the top of the page.

Enter NetID and Password

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.

Your NetID and associated password are the only credentials needed to access most University and campus networking and computing services.  Services such as the my.UIC portal, Blackboard, email, campus computer labs, printers and more.

Passwords are managed centrally via the IAM Password Management service. 

Important note: iPod touch and iPad devices need an existing network connection to download and install the UIC-WiFi profile. You do not have to be connected to UIC-WiFi to download and install the profile, but you do have to be connected to the Internet. Please use another wireless connection (at home, coffee shop). 

To connect to UIC Virtual Private Network (VPN) on a Windows computer, download and install Viscosity from the WebStore. Free of charge for UIC faculty, staff, students, and affiliates.

Having a fast Internet connection that's "always on" when you want to surf the Web is great for you, but it's also great for hackers from around the world who sweep through thousands of random IP addresses looking for computers that they can exploit. And what they can do is really quite scary.

When changes occur within the main (Global Address Book) on the Exchange server; computers running Outlook 2007 and 2010 may not automatically receive the updates. When this happens you may be missing new entries, see non-existent entries, or notice incorrect entries. Updating your address book synchronizes the cached Address Book with the Global address book, and may fix instances of mail that is bounced back to the sender.
