When you arrive at the University of Connecticut as an Engineering student or if you are taking engineering classes, you receive two email accounts. The first is the University email (UITS) that all students receive. The second is a value added email available only within the School of Engineering.
Your university email, email@example.com, will go to your University mailbox.
The blue line shows the initial configuration of your Engineering email. Mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org goes to our server but will be forwarded to the university system. With this configuration all your university email will go to one place.
There are a number of ways you can configure the email system to serve you. The choice is yours and the solution you choose is up to you and based on your personal preferences.
