Alumni Email Account

The Penn Law student/alumni email system is hosted in Office 365. As a student, you will receive a lifelong email account that will follow you after graduation and beyond.

  • Lifelong addresses will use the format username@pennlaw.upenn.edu.
  • In addition to email, students and alums will also have access to a full featured Outlook Calendar.

 

Logging in to your Office 365 Email Account

Once your alumni email account has been provisioned, you will be able to access your O365 email account via the Outlook Web App at https://outlook.office365.com. Login using your new email address (YourLawKey@pennlaw.upenn.edu) and your LawKey password.
 

Automatic Online Archiving

Large email accounts cause Outlook to slow down, take longer to search, and crash more often. Online archiving will automatically move emails older than two years into an online archive.

The archive folders appear in a section named Archive located below your normal folders and are searchable just like regular emails. The archive is available whenever you are connected to the Internet through Outlook for Windows and Outlook Web App

Prefer to forward your Penn Law email to an existing account?

You will be able to manage mail forwarding using the Outlook Web App (https://outlook.office365.com). Full instructions are available in this Support Article.

If you have enabled forwarding and are using a different email account, there may be instances when you want to send emails with your @pennlaw.upenn.edu address. Many email providers allow you to send messages using a different From or Reply-to address.

You will need the following information to send email with your @pennlaw.upenn.edu address through another email provider:

SMTP Server: smtp.office365.com

Port: 587 (Choose a secured connection using TLS)

Username: lawkey@pennlaw.upenn.edu

Note: Make sure “Treat as an alias” is unchecked.

The process is different for each email provider and service. Many free email providers provide send as functionality. Here are the instructions for Gmail.
