Ever since UW-IT sunsetted the Deskmail service the two best options for email are Office 365 and UW G Suite. Unless there is a specific reason not to, we recommend that all Shared NetIDs use Office 365 for email. Some of the reasons are HIPAA and FERPA compatibility and the ability for us (or even you) to manage who has access to the email for this account. Here is how to make that happen.

  • Contact the iSchool IT Help Desk and tell us what your Shared NetID is and that you want to change the email forwarding to Office 365.
  • We will then endorse this NetID for an Office 365 license.
  • We will then ask you to make us an Admin for this NetID so that we can change the UW Email Forwarding.
  • Once the email forwarding has been changed, we will grant you access to the Exchange Online Mailbox for the NetID and walk you through the process of adding this account to Outlook or accessing it via OWA.
