Accessing Email from Student Labs

As a UW faculty or staff member you can access your UW email account using Microsoft Outlook in the UWSTUDENT labs, though it is not the recommended method for everyday use. Faculty and staff accounts do not function the same as student accounts do in the UWSTUDENT labs. Faculty and staff accounts are not saved after each use in the labs as student accounts are. Therefore, Microsoft Outlook will install components and configure itself each time you log into a lab computer and open Outlook just as if it were the first time. Any settings or changes you make to the Outlook configuration will need to be remade after each login. For this reason, Outlook Web App at is the recommended method for faculty and staff to access their UW email from UWSTUDENT lab systems for everyday use.
