7. How do I access my e-mail and other network services?Once you receive your official appointment, contact your department to ensure that your information has been sent to Human Resources, which can then put you into the system. Once you are officially in the system, you become eligible for the services of a UAlbany (SUNY) employee.
Usernames, ID's and Passwords
You will not be able to access the internet or e-mail until ITS assigns you a Net ID. Your Technology Coordinator will help you procure one, and should be able to lead you through the initial steps of logging in and setting up a password. Once you have a Net ID, you will want to read about the MyUAlbany portal.
Email and internet
When you log onto MyUAlbany for the first time it will ask you to create a password to access several functions. This password can be used to access different information systems (including e-mail, webmail, and Blackboard) by clicking the box next to each system for which you hope to use that password. Some faculty members like the added security of having three separate passwords.
