Email for students
With the uniACCOUNT, students automatically receive an e-mail address of the University of Graz. This e-mail address is intended to ensure that e-mails relevant to studies are actually delivered - regardless of quota restrictions or filter settings of various providers.

Webaccess is certainly the easiest way to receive and send e-mails using a browser. This access works on our PC workstations as well as on your device at home.
On the smartphone/tablet
While on the road, students can receive and send e-mails with their smartphone or tablet, whether Android, Apple iPhone, Blackberry, Symbian (Nokia) or Windows Mobile. The prerequisite for this is that the smartphone supports Exchange ActiveSync. In addition to access via an Exchange ActiveSync client, IMAP is also supported.
On the work device
Students can access email from their work device using an email client (e.g. Outlook or Thunderbird).
With "Outlook Anywhere" students can access the university mailbox directly with Outlook - without a VPN connection. The data is sent via a secure connection between client and server and is thus protected in the same way as with VPN.
Students can also retrieve e-mails outside the university network using the IMAP protocol. However, sending messages with the university mail server is only possible within the university network. Outside the university you have to use the outgoing mail server of the local provider.
Forwarding of e-mails is possible via the business card in UNIGRAZonline. However, it is important to make sure that the e-mail address is entered correctly. The university does not provide support for forwarded e-mails.
Webmail I like because ...
... I don't have to install a program for it.
"I can open it anywhere and I don't have to worry about any email settings".
... I get all my university e-mails secured there.
"I want to separate my private mails from my study mails. Webmail is perfect".
... I can easily recognize phishing e-mails here.
"I see the link addresses and the senders, I can roughly judge if it's a phishing or a real email. You can't do that everywhere."
