Email Services

The University of Minnesota provides email accounts to all eligible faculty, staff, and students. Additional services are also available for managing email. Some of these are provided by default; others require the user to opt in. Initially, all email accounts are basic client/server accounts.

Email is a common good service provided by the Office of Information Technology. Central email service for the Twin Cities, Morris, and Crookston campuses include mail routing, spam blocking, virus filtering, and the Gophermail WebMail client. In addition, the University has partnered with Google to offer Google Apps for the University of Minnesota's students, staff, and faculty. Partnering Google will give the University community access to a suite of state-of-the-art communication and collaboration tools, which includes Gmail.

Lyris Transition Status 

ExactTarget will replace Lyris in phases throughout 2014. Usability has been completed and training is being developed.

Training information will be available on the service transition page and on the Technology Training website when available.

IT is working on a schedule to roll out ExactTarget to current Lyris users beginning in late August/early September. Units using Lyris should plan to continue to use it until ExactTarget becomes available to them.
