Nota Bene

  • It is no longer possible to set up a redirection from the student mailbox to a personal mailbox;
  • The IMAP protocol for student addresses will soon be available;
  • PhD students don't have access to Zimbra student webmail but can ask for professional email address. For more information, see the web page ‘Zimbra (messagerie)’ on the staff profile of the IT services catalog.
