The University presently uses a Unix mail server. Eudora and Outlook are
the two most commonly used email programs that are available to users. All
faculty, staff and students are expected to use electronic mail.
Electronic mail is the designated method for most communications to Faculty and
Usernames and Passwords have been setup for your use. The convention for faculty
and staff email addresses is, your first initial, then up to the next seven
letters of your last name. If you have problems with the username/password
provided, please contact the Helpdesk at x1369.
Directory services is a useful function of Eudora. It is handy for looking up
the same type of information provided in the campus directory (i.e. email
addresses, office and home phone numbers, room numbers and also ‘when mail was
last downloaded’ and ‘date and time of oldest mail in a person’s email
The University's electronic mail is for the business of the
University. The ability to send a message to the public distribution lists is a
very valuable feature of the system; but it should not be used for messages
which advertise commercial events or activities or for private business
activities of an individual. (The exception is the Classifieds mailing list).
From the Sewanee homepage, click on the 'Faculty-Staff-Students' tab, then
click on the 'check my email' tab. Web
There are four different templates that you can use within
the web browser...the
one named 'panel' looks closer to Outlook than the others. You should also
try to remember to logoff when done, but if you don't it will eventually time

The University is a tax-exempt organization under the Internal Revenue Code. And as such, there are severe
restrictions on our ability to lobby for or against legislation or endorse
political candidates. Use of University resources, including its email system,
for such purposes should be avoided. Providing information without advocating a
position is acceptable, but using distribution lists to ask persons to take a
particular political action is unacceptable.
Several examples follow:
An announcement of a vehicle for sale by the University
Distribution of committee minutes
Updates of mailing lists
Announcements about staff volleyball
Providing facts about pending legislation
The announcement of the birth of a child of an employee
Requests for placement of pets
These might be perfectly appropriate within a department,
but not for public distribution lists.
Announcement of a Tupperware party
Asking readers to write legislatures asking them to take a particular
