Integrated with each employee account is a unique personalized email address and private mailbox. The email address is in the form of "firstname.lastname@example.org" (no quotes).
Employee email and collaboration services are hosted on Microsoft’s Office 365 platform. The Microsoft Outlook email desktop client comes pre-installed on IT-imaged computers and includes email, contacts, calendaring and scheduling functions into one program.
Off Campus Access:
The Outlook Web App offers the ability to access email and other Office 365 services any where on the Internet . Staff and Faculty can access their email off campus via the web app, by logging into myTrent and selecting the Outlook icon.
Note: The "online" version provides a limited interface with fewer features than Outlook's full desktop app.
This service also works with most common mobile devices such as IOS and Android. To receive email on their mobile users need only complete the appropriate ActiveSync configuration on their device. Please note: All staff, retirees and Professors Emeriti can retain their Trent email accounts.
Office 365/Outlook can be configured to your own personal preferences, and may be setup to be viewed on a different e-mail client altogether.
