A USF e-mail address is automatically setup when you sign up for your NetID. Your e-mail address name will be your NetID name.
- If you are a student you will get a @mail.usf.edu address, which is hosted on Google Apps
- If you are a employee (except for certain classes of employees which are typically filled by students ie TA, GA) you will get a @usf.edu address
If you have a @mail.usf.edu account and need a @usf.edu employee address contact Doug Myhre.
@mail.usf.edu addresses are permanent, you can keep them after after leaving USF.
@usf.edu accounts are closed as soon as you are no longer an employee.
Both e-mail addresses can be checked by logging into MyUSF and going to the E-mail menu option. Click on the links below for steps to setup mail clients, like hotmail login, Thunderbird and mobile devices to access your e-mail.
