Your address is in the following format: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Webmail: Outlook Web Access
Your Law School email account is accessible from the web using Outlook Web Access (OWA). OWA works best in Internet Explorer. Firefox, Safari, and Chrome can be used as well with some limited features.

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?
If you have enabled forwarding and are using a different email account, there may be instances when you want to send emails with your @law.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 @law.upenn.edu address through another email provider:
SMTP Server: smtp.office365.com
Port: 587 (Choose a secured connection using TLS)
The process is different for each email provider and service. Many free email providers provide send as functionality. Here are the instructions for Gmail.
