My Pitt Email

Overview

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 Office 365 Email. 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 are in the process of being migrated to Office 365 Email for their My Pitt Email to ensure a consistent email experience across the University. However, some faculty and staff are using Exchange 2013 for their My Pitt Email.

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.
