An Exchange email only account provides a Microsoft Exchange email account that may or may not be associated with a single user. These email accounts can be used for ongoing University functions or special projects where one or more individuals need to share a common mailbox. The From field in email sent from an Exchange email only account can contain the name of the shared email account rather than the particular individual sending the email, for example, email@example.com.
Exchange email only account lengths are not limited to 8 characters. Display names can be most any text, including spaces. Disc space is allocated for each email account as if it were a normal user email account.
To access an Exchange email only account, a user must have a valid UW domain account and must have been given permission to access the email account.
For existing accounts, changes need to be requested or approved by the account holder.
Click on the "Request Account" icon on the right. Fill out the form fields completely and a request will be submitted to UWIT. Our agents will verify the billing is approved with the departmental billing coordinator, generate the account, then respond to your request with the account name and instructions for accessing the account.
To request an email only account please click "Request Change."
UW special accounts are available for a small monthly fee and will be included in each department’s monthly telecommunications bill. This fee covers the costs of software licenses, server resources, and administration.
