You can customize your UMail account settings using the uNID Account tools. You will be asked to log in using your University Network ID (uNID). You may experience a delay after login as the page loads information about your account.
Set Up An Alias
Your UMail alias(es) is the personalized form of your default UMail address (uNID@utah.edu). You are encouraged to personalize this default address.
Valid aliases are based on your name and should be in the format of Firstname.Lastname@utah.edu. Middle names, initials, or nickname.lastname might also be accepted. (For example: j.doe@ or John.R.Doe@)
UMail aliases can be activated or disabled in the uNID Account Tools. While you may activate or disable any alias you already have, you can only create a new one if you have 3 or fewer aliases.
You can set your UMail to forward to another email address. The address you forward to must already exist and be working. A confirmation code will be mailed to that address to verify that it is working before we start forwarding mail to it. The forward request will be canceled if the confirmation request is not received and acted on within 72 hours. You will have to enter the confirmation code in your uNID Tools Screen before forwarding will be activated. Instructions will be in the confirmation email.
Remove From The UMail Address Book
If you do not want your contact information to appear in the global address book, you can request to have it removed.
NOTE: Individuals with FERPA restrictions on their records do not appear in the global address book.
IMPORTANT: Removing yourself from the UMail address book does not mean that you have placed a FERPA restriction on your record. See the University's FERPA statement for more information.
