What Do I Need to Do?

Current Students, Faculty, Staff or Retirees

Current students, faculty, staff or retirees need to migrate their personal, organizational or departmental accounts to Zimbra. Contact the uTech Support Center at 309-298-2704 to start the process.

Alumni

Alumni that previously used WebMail must configure a third party desktop email client (Outlook, Mac Mail, Thunderbird, etc.) to connect to your WIU email account. Basic instructions can be found here.

You do not need to take any action if:
  • You are currently using Zimbra for your email
  • You are an alumni already using a 3rd party email client to access your WIU email

Please contact the uTech Support Center at 309-298-2704 with any questions or concerns.
