Your university mail is provided by Google. Google Mail can be accessed both on and off campus by staff and students. It can be added to mobile devices to be accessed on the go. You can easily organise your inbox into folders and labels and you can set filters to automatically sort your incoming mail.

Generic Email Accounts & Mailboxes
A generic email account gives you a unique email address and mailbox. Available to staff only, it is generally used as a contact method for a specific service or group. The owner will be issued a username and password for the account and is the only person authorised to request a password reset. This is used to share the workload between a group of individuals who are given delegate access to the mailbox.
Please Note: this is for a generic email address and inbox, this is not a Google Group. If you wish to start a Google Group please use the link under the heading 'Google Groups'.
If you need to use a shared inbox for your department, or just have someone keep an eye on your work emails whilst you’re away, Inbox Delegation in your University GMail is a great way to do it. Using Inbox Delegation you can grant up to 25 people access to your personal or shared inbox without ever having to give out your password. Delegates will not be able to change any passwords or account settings or access any other Google Apps. Any messages sent by a delegate will also say: Your Name: Sent by ‘Delegates Name’.
Delegate access can also be quickly and easily removed from accounts when it’s no longer needed.
Alternatively, a Google Group may be more suitable to your needs. This allows a group of people to share documents and collaborate as well as having group email functionality. Full information can be found on the link below.
Please Note: this is for a Google Group. If you wish to have a generic email address and mail inbox that is accessible by a group of people please use the above link under 'Generic Email Accounts & Mailboxes'.
