mail@UCSF is a suite of products for UCSF email, calendaring, contact information, and spam filtering.
The mail@UCSF system allows access to email, calendaring and contact information to your portable devices. The two types of mobile device synchronization services are BlackBerry Enterprise Server and ActiveSync.
The mail@UCSF system includes access to an integrated hardware and software anti-spam solution designed to protect your email account from spam while providing the functionality our customers require.
Access to mail@UCSF accounts and features through the Outlook Web App (OWA) web mail client.
There are several ways to post a mass-mailing; server-based distribution lists (dl), listservs, personal distribution lists and mail merges. Here's a quick table to assist in determining which method works best for you.
The single form for access to most Medical Center systems.
UCSF Medical Center IT, ITS and the School of Medicine ISU have jointly developed a system to send secure email. The UCSF Secure Messenger system is designed to help faculty, students, and staff comply with the federal HIPAA regulations.
The mail@UCSF Password Reset Tool provides a convenient way of managing access to your email/computer account.
Active Directory accounts (commonly referred to as a computer or email account) are a Microsoft-based technology that provides a variety of networked services.
Resource accounts are used to create mailboxes that represent resources, such as conference rooms or equipment items such as projectors. Customers can then book these items via the calendaring feature of Exchange in much the same way that they invite fellow attendees.
UCSF ITS-hosted electronic mailing lists for the UCSF community; listserv owners must be UCSF faculty, students, or staff.
