Computer Account Services
When you have activated your basic computer account, it includes your Drexel Official Address (email@example.com) and a basic email account with 100 MB of space; most faculty and staff, however, will choose to create a 1 GB Exchange account. Email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org or to your Official Address will arrive in the same inbox.
Once activated, email can be accessed at https://mail.drexel.edu or via DrexelOne at https://one.drexel.edu.
Exchange Mail Account
In addition to the Drexel basic email account, an Exchange account with 1 GB of space is available to faculty and professional staff. An Exchange account facilitates the sharing of calendars, contacts, meeting invitations, and more. Request an Exchange account at http://www.drexel.edu/irt/accounts/setup/getExchange.
Exchange can be set up to utilize Outlook on your computer, smartphone, or via the Web at http://exchangeweb.drexel.edu. For instructions, search "configure email" at http://ask.drexel.edu.
Drexel University communicates important information to students, faculty, and staff via using the Drexel Official Address mentioned above. It is your responsibility to read your Drexel email regularly, either directly or by forwarding it to another account. Use the Computer Accounts Management Service at https://accounts.drexel.edu to manage your mail delivery options.
Backup and Data Recovery Account
Backup and recovery service is provided by Connected Backup/PC. Service can be purchased for individual computers at http://www.drexel.edu/irt/computers/backup.
