An email alias is an email address that forwards messages to a single existing email address. An email alias is not an account and does not have a password associated with it. Email aliases must be requested and owned by a UIC faculty or staff member who will manage the forwarding of the alias. Email aliases are useful for receiving email related to a specific purpose that has only one intended recipient.

Setting up an email list enables you to email several people at once by simply entering a nickname in the 'To:' field of the email. The email list nickname replaces having to repeatedly type out many email addresses and is particularly useful when you send emails to the same group of people again and again. To set up the list, do the following:

The lack of direct SyncML sync to iCal on the iPhone is because Apple won't let third party software interact with iCal. Synthesis AG got tired of waiting for this to change, and decided to make their own calendar and task application; Todo+Cal+Sync is the result.

There are only two problems:

There isn't a specific tool to transfer all your data from UICalendar to your Google Calendar, but it is easy to get data from UICal into Google Calendar. You can either:

The ACCC runs an LDAP server that you can use to look up the names and email addresses of people using NetID@uic.edu email addresses. This page explains how to use this LDAP server with Address Book and Mail.app on Macs.

If you want to import your Google Calendar into Outlook, you don’t have to re-enter all of your appointments. Instead, export your Google Calendar to a file, and then import them into Outlook on your desktop. It’s not a one-click button but there’s a wizard that’ll walk you through the steps.

 

File attachments may be added to different places in a Course. For example, to an Item, an Assignment, or a File in a Learning Module. There are two options for adding file attachments:

UIC faculty, staff and students can use the Listserv Creation Form to create new lists. The list will be created immediately; its email address will be listname@listserv.uic.edu, where listname is the name you selected for the list. The additional email alias listname@uic.edu will be created instantly as well, although this is only an alias that routes email to listname@listserv.uic.edu.

The Oracle Mobile Data Sync, or OMA-DS (formerly known as SyncML), allows you to sync your mobile phone or PDA with a wireless connection directly with the UIC UICalendar server, without connecting it to a PC or Mac and without using your phone or PDA's Web browser. It does require OMA-DS/SyncML support on your mobile phone or PDA -- either built-in or through purchased software. In this case, you enter a specialized URL into SyncML client software. The SyncML client uses the URL to talk to the UICal server and syncs both ways, to the phone or PDA and back to UICal.

The most flexible way to access UICalendar on your iPhone is still to use Safari on the iPhone to use the UICalendar web client. However, other ways of using UICalendar from the iPhone are getting a lot better now. By far the easiest way is to import your UICalendar calendar into iCal on the your iOS device. This gives you everything, including alarms. The only thing that is missing is that you can't enter new events on the iPhone and upload them to UICalendar. Importing your UICal calendar into iCal requires at least iOS 3.0.
