Webmail

Webmail is a service available to all University of Texas students, faculty, and staff. There are no programs to download – you can access Webmail from any standard web browser. Webmail is an IMAP application that utilizes an easy to use interface. If you are familiar with other webmail programs, such as Hotmail and Yahoo, then UT’s Webmail system will seem reassuringly familiar.

For more information on how to use your Webmail account, see the Webmail tutorial. This tutorial shows you how to access your School of Information email account from the Webmail system; how to read, delete, and compose email; how to add signatures; and how to set up filters, folders, and an address book.

Who should use Webmail? Webmail is a good option for users who check their email from multiple computers, are familiar with web-based email applications (such as Yahoo or Hotmail), and would like access to all of their messages, regardless of which computer they are using.
