Email

 

The university uses Office365 for staff and student email.

  • On a university or college PC you can access this through the Outlook Client.
  • On your personal equipment you can access your email through a web browser for access anywhere with an internet connection, this is known as the Outlook Web App (OWA).  Students are also entitled to download Office 365 for free with us.
 

Webmail Tips

  • We've found our webmail works best with the latest version of Internet Explorer or Firefox for access.
  • Use your email address for logging in (<username>@uhi.ac.uk), step by step login information.
  • If you are having access issues and have Avast installed, contact the UHI Servicedesk for configuration assistance.
  • We've simplified the login process for the Outlook Web App (OWA). It now works the same way across multiple browsers, whether you are at home or on campus.
 
If you have problems with this service please contact the UHI Servicedesk.

Office365

As the Outlook client effectively caches your data once it has been setup on your usual PC/Laptop/MAC device if you need to access your email from another device you will need to use the Web Access Client instead.

Below are the activities that we know staff and students carryout regularly. A wide range of instructions for other activities is available for the Windows Outlook Client and the MAC Client

A more full list of the differences between the Outlook app and the Web Access client can be found here.
