Argo should not be used to send or receive email. Please do not install your own copy of a mail user agent (such as pine or elm). Doing so will result in loss of your account. Please choose from existing Email and Calendaring options instead.

Everyone at UIC who has actived their NetID has an email address of the form, where NetID is their UIC NetID. This is not an email account; you have to specify an actual email address that the email sent to this address should be forwarded to. The email address that your email is sent to may be one that is provided by the ACCC or it may be one that you already have.

Use Email Filters to create custom filters for Basic Email (Tigger and Mailserv) accounts.

Email filters are sets of rules that determine what happens to incoming messages. Using these filters you can automatically take some action on incoming mail, whether it is sorting mail from Harry into the 'harry' folder, or automatically replying to mail while you're on vacation. You will probably want to use email filtering if you receive a lot of messages.

A rule is an action that Microsoft Outlook performs automatically upon incoming or outgoing messages, based on conditions that you have specified. You can create a rule from a template, from a message, or using your own conditions. You can choose many conditions and actions by using the Rules Wizard. Rules fall into one of two categories — organization and notification. Rules don’t operate on messages that have been read, only on those that are unread.

Alias owners can update the forwarding of an email alias at any time (authentication required).

What are email headers?

Email headers are the lines at the top of an email message that are used by servers on the Internet as they deliver the message. Your email program normally shows you only the standard To:, From:, Subject:, and Date: headers, but there are more. For instance, if you receive a piece of spam, you can expand the mail headers to more closely examine the Received: header, which tells you the route the message took when it was sent to you.
