Faculty & Staff Email Accounts
Full-time Faculty and Staff receive a full Outlook Exchange account for email, calendar, and contacts. Your address was created at the same time as your LawKey account and was included in the activation email message you received. Your address is in the following format: email@example.com.
Accessing your Email
Faculty/staff can access their email from the Outlook desktop application installed on their Law School computer, via Outlook Web Access (OWA), or Outlook mobile.
To access Outlook Web Access (OWA), visit https://email.law.upenn.edu (login with your full email address and LawKey password).
NOTE: Outlook is the supported email client for Penn Carey Law email. ITS will not be able to provide full service support if you choose to manage your email with a non-Outlook tool or forward your email to an external mailbox.
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
