Outlook Web App

Faculty and staff members can access their email by logging into https://exchange.uanet.edu. Webmail has a size limitation, for sending or receiving. Users are able to send or receive mail smaller than 10 Mb including attachments.

Problems Logging in

A common cause of not being able to log in is that your password expired. The University of Akron has a 180 day password reset policy. If you suspect your password may be expired, Log into http://auth.uakron.edu and login with your account as normal. You will be prompted to change your password. After changing your password, you should be able to log in to all services immediately.
