About “@ece.uw.edu” email addresses

If you are faculty or staff in the ECE department, you automatically have an UWECE email address – yournetid@ece.uw.edu . So if your NetID is “arthur42”, your ECE email email address is “arthur42@ece.uw.edu”. This address is strictly a forwarding address – any email sent to it is simply passed along to your UW email inbox.

UW Google Apps Gmail

Since the UW already provides full email accounts for UW faculty, staff, and students, the ECE department does not duplicate this service.

UW offers Google Apps Gmail as well as most other parts of the Google Apps suite. Using Gmail will still allow you to use your @uw.edu address, and will not conflict with your personal Gmail account. Another option is to use a desktop e-mail client. These can be used in conjunction with UW Gmail.

UWECE Computing recommends faculty and staff use UW’s Google Apps Gmail – it is what we support. If you wish to use a desktop email program, we can help you configure Outlook (Windows) or Mail.app (Mac) to work with UW Gmail. We do not support any other mail configurations.

We can also help you configure your iPhone/iPad, Android phone, or Windows phone to access your UW Gmail.

For assistance with the supported configurations listed here, please contact the ECE Helpdesk.
