A departmental email account is different from an individual account in that several people may access it via Webmail. The address usually includes the department name (e.g., email@example.com) or an action (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org), or the purpose (e.g. email@example.com) .
These accounts are created upon request when an individual’s account would not suffice for the email expected to be received. There are several reasons for such accounts including:
Any university employee may request a departmental email account on behalf of a department or committee.
Requests for departmental email accounts are made by completing the online form.
Be sure to read and understand the Password Policy.
Once the account is created, the requestor will receive the necessary information to log in to the account. Departmental accounts will be created as either an email only account (accessible only via Webmail, https://webmail.roosevelt.edu) or as a shared mailbox which can be opened in Outlook. Once the request has been submitted, we will work with the requestor to determine the appropriate method of access.
It is important to remember that these accounts are subject to the same password policy and mailbox size limits as individual accounts.
