Computing Services and Systems Development provides enterprise email services for use by the University community.
Students have access to My Pitt Email, a cloud-based email service provided through Exchange Online, which is a component of Microsoft's Office 365 platform. My Pitt Email provides 50 GB of email storage. But it's more than just email. It also includes an online calendar you can use to create appointments, view free/busy time, and schedule meetings with others. You can use the online address book to look up anyone at Pitt. You can access a full-featured web interface by clicking the My Pitt Email link at the top of any page within My Pitt (my.pitt.edu).
Faculty and staff have access to My Pitt Email (Exchange 2013), an upgraded version of the University's Enterprise Exchange email service. My Pitt Email features an enhanced Web interface and allows you to increase your email storage as you need it. You can also share your calendar with others and schedule meetings. Whether you access email from your desktop, a Web browser, or on your smartphone, My Pitt Email provides a consistent email interface across all of your devices.
All students, faculty, and staff have the option to personalize their My Pitt Email address by adding an additional email address (known as an alias). Students, faculty, and staff may also choose to have email messages that are sent to their University email address forwarded to another email address.
As of spring 2015, graduating students are able to keep their My Pitt Email mailbox, including all of the contents within it, for as long as they like after graduation. Alumni may send and receive messages from their My Pitt Email address and any aliases they created while they were a student at Pitt.
Spam and Virus Filtering protects University email addresses against harmful viruses and unwanted junk messages. Students, faculty, and staff can also approve or block specific senders and customize how aggressively their email is filtered for bulk mail.
