Microsoft Outlook 365

WSU email is located at sky.winona.edu. You will use your StarID followed by "@winona.edu" to log into your email. Your WSU email address, however, will remain the friendly email address, e.g. jsmith14@winona.edu.

  • Use email through graduation and beyond
  • Protect email from spam & viruses
  • Use mailbox aggregation that allows you to aggregate other personal e-mail accounts within Outlook 365
  • Get access to your email, contacts, and calendar from anywhere including a broad range of active sync enabled phones (examples: Windows Phone, iPhone, Android)

There are two major ways to access your email, via the internet and via a local email client.

  • Webmail - For accessing your email anywhere with an internet connection on any computer.
  • Outlook - Program for accessing email on computer, has advantages over webmail.
    • The Outlook App is available and great to use on mobile devices.

Student Storage

NOTE

According to FERPA Guide 2012 p 39: "Non-public educational data should never be sent to non-institutional assigned accounts... The institution would be held responsible if an unauthorized third party gained access to a student's education record...

What this means is that we cannot support forwarding WSU emails to a different preferred account.
