At IU, what is my email address?
At Indiana University, your email address and the types of accounts available to you may vary based on your campus and IU status. At all campuses except IPFW, undergraduate students create email accounts on the Umail system when they create their first accounts. Faculty and staff are hosted on the Exchange servers. Graduate students may create either a Umail account, an Exchange account, or both.

Before setting your IU email address to forward to a non-IU account (e.g., Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo!), note:
- UITS cannot guarantee email delivery to non-IU accounts, delays in delivery can occur, and the UITS Support Center may not be able to help with some problems concerning non-IU accounts. If your email forwarding fails for any reason, you may miss important official communications sent to your IU address for which you are still responsible.
- Faculty, staff, residents, and students in HIPAA Affected Areas whose roles may require sharing protected health information (PHI) via email (e.g., Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Optometry) are not permitted to set up mail forwarding to outside accounts, as this could result in the violation of federal and state laws. For more, see HIPAA Privacy and Security.
