Log into Academic Email.
All students with a NetID and all faculty with a CCAC network account have an academic mail and web account available to them. Any faculty or students wishing to have an academic mail and/or web account will need to establish a CCAC network account.
The current webmail interface allows you to read and compose HTML formatted email. (What is HTML formatted email?)
The academic mail server is located at webmail.acd.ccac.edu, accessible from the CCAC network and any computer on the Internet. These accounts will use the same username and password as your CCAC network account or NetID and the email address will be in the format firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are limited to 100 MB for their email inbox. Faculty are limited to 500 MB for their email inbox. If your inbox reaches the limit, there will be an alert warning the user to clean out their inbox. An additional alert will display after 4 hours, if the mailbox remains full. Mail will be deferred at the server level for up to 5 days, during which time the mail will be forwarded to the inbox once room becomes available. If the user does not reduce the size of their inbox after the 5 days, deferred email will be purged.
All incoming emails are routinely scanned and potential spam is filtered by the PureMessage Spam Filtering software. See the Spam Filtering Procedures webpage for instructions on checking Spam Messages and filtering these messages to another folder in your mailbox.
