Managing staff email

You can manage your staff email account in many ways. For example, you may want to:

Generic or role-based email address

You can also get a generic or role-based email address set up for a role or function, rather than an individual. For example, you could use a unique email address for your:

  • department
  • service
  • conference
  • research group

Please use the Ask IT Customer Portal to request a new generic or role-based email address. You will be prompted to log in with your University username and password which will populate the form with your contact details. Make sure that you have Flash enabled in your web browser.
