Members of the Department are given individual email accounts on the central University email system: Exchange Online (ExOL). Members of staff who have been here longer term may still have an account on the older Hermes system instead, but can choose to migrate to ExOL. Both of these services are run by UIS (University Information Services), who provide a wide range of documentation, information and FAQs about use of email within Cambridge (see here).
We can provide help on configuring your email program. The programs supported on Windows are Outlook (with ExOL), Thunderbird (with Hermes), and on Mac OS Apple Mail (with Hermes or ExOL). Webmail can also be used to access email for any configuration.
The Department also provides various other email services, both internally and in conjunction with UIS.
