Your account at Office 365 Education will expire when your student account is deactivated after you end your studies. If you have email and/or other data (documents, pictures etc) saved at Office 365 Education you will have to move it to another location before the closing date.
With your student account you get a personal email address where the university sends information about your studies. Since January 2017 all students at Uppsala University are offered an Office 365 Education account including Microsoft’s email service.
Your email is hosted by Outlook.com via Office 365 Education, where you receive an inbox with 50 GB of email space. Just visit https://outlook.com/student.uu.se using any device and log on with user ID @student.uu.se and your Password A.
You can also configure your e-mail in different ways. You can for example configure an autoreply or set up email forwarding if you want to keep using your old Gmail, Hotmail or other email services.
When you configure other email client you need to use the instructions for Exchange account settings. You cannot use the instructions for pop, imap or Outlook.com as these ways to connect are not supported in our Office 365 Education, even though you will find such instructions on Microsoft support web.
