Logging in to Webmail
Once you go to any of the addresses above, you will be prompted for your email address and password.
- In the Email Address field, type your complete email address (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org).
- In the Password field, enter the password you provided when you created the email account.
If you decide to upgrade your email to Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) or Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), then the way to log into your email will differ from the steps above.
With Google Workspace, you will log into your email via https://mail.google.com. You will need to enter your complete email address and password if you have already completed the Google Workspace setup and created at least one email account. If you have not completed those steps yet, please go ahead and finish the setup so you can send and receive emails.
For Microsoft 365 users, you will use Outlook and will log into your email via https://login.live.com. If you need to create an email account, you can follow the step-by-step instructions in the video below or read through the process in this article. If you have not gone through those steps at least once already, you will need to before you're able to send and receive emails.
