All About Email at UO

What systems are there?

The University of Oregon is moving to one consolidated email system: UOmail, hosted by Microsoft as a part of Office 365.

As of July 2022, that transition is nearly complete. Until it's finished, there are still two email systems: Webmail and UOmail.

Who is using UOmail?

All UO faculty, staff, and students are on the UOmail system, as are many departmental role accounts.

Webmail users include retirees and several hundred role accounts.
