Current faculty, staff, and students receive a free @stanford.edu email account. An email account can be sponsored for contractors and consultants, temporary staff, visiting faculty, and others for a fee.
Your campus email is hosted on Zimbra, Google Apps, or Exchange, as determined by your affiliation with the University:
- The Zimbra Collaboration Suite lets you access your email, calendar, address book, and tasks on any computer through a web browser. Much of the faculty and staff on campus access their @stanford.edu email through Zimbra.
- One of the core applications in Google Apps is Google Mail. All undergraduate students plus some schools and departments access their @stanford.edu email on Google Apps.
- IT Services offers mailboxes on a Microsoft Exchange server for a monthly fee. The Exchange mailbox provides integrated services for email, calendar, contacts, and task management.
Some University Schools and Departments maintain their own email servers. Please consult your Department IT Contact.
