Use of Electronic Mail
You are required to setup an E-mail account of the form
firstname.lastname@example.org. This account is based upon your UWNetID.
You may, of
course, forward your e-mail to any account for processing, but it is required
that you will have an active account of the form
email@example.com that you check daily or forward. Again, this is a course
requirement, regardless of how you prefer to read your e-mail. Note in particular that this e-mail is not of the form @uwb.edu. It is either @u.washington.edu or @uw.edu.
You may already be regularly reading e-mail elsewhere and prefer to continue
that practice. To do this, you need to set up mail forwarding from your UW
email account. After setting up your UW account, go to the
management page for your
UWNetID. Click on the "Change UW email forwarding" link and set up your
forwarding. Test this to make sure it works, by sending an
message to yourself at firstname.lastname@example.org
and see if it eventually shows up at your preferred account. It is your
responsibility to make sure that all UWNetID e-mail is being forwarded
properly. A failure to properly forward and read your UWNetID email will not be
considered an excuse for any messages that you may miss.
Even if you chose to permanently forward your UW e-mail, you will still need to keep
your UWNetID and password at hand as they will be needed for various of the
courseware services we will be using.
If you are having trouble setting up your account, please see the UWB
