Creating your UDelNet account

A UDelNet account is automatically created for each new student or faculty/staff member the day after you receive a UD ID card. The UDelNet account provides you with a UD email address and disk space for email and other files. Before it can be used, however, you must activate the UDelNet account by assigning it a UDelNet ID (username) and password:

UDelNet ID (username)

UDelNet password

See Access to Computing Resources for more information on terms and length of use.

Forwarding email

NOTE for students

If you receive an IMAP not recognized error message, edit your email account as follows:

  1. Students who want to forward email from their UDelNet Google Apps account MUST follow the forwarding directions below. DO NOT set up forwarding from within Google Apps.
  2. Email filtering by other email providers (MSN, Hotmail, AOL, etc.) is beyond the control of the University and may subject incoming mail to filtering that blocks your forwarded email as spam.
  3. Forwarding your UD email to an outside email account carries the risk that you will not receive email that is important to your academic success—from professors, the administration, and classmates.
  4. To ensure your forwarding is working, periodically send a test message to your UD address and verify that you have received it in your other account. Forwarded mail is NOT secure once it leaves the University's mail server. Some faculty members require class mail to be sent from a student's UD email account.
  5. Make sure your forwarding address remains valid and that you do not exceed the mailbox storage limits in that account.

Students:

  1. Log in to the UD network page.
  2. Choose Forward your Email to a non-UD account.
  3. Provide the full address of your other account.
  4. Forwarding takes place immediately. All mail sent to your UD address will, from this point forward, only appear in the other account.
  5. Any email that was in the UD mail account before forwarding was set will remain there.

Changing your UDelNet ID (username)

You can change your UDelNet ID (username) by logging in to the UD network page. Incoming mail will be delivered to both the old and new address for only a very short time. You should notify your correspondents of the name change.

Changing your UDelNet password

Log in to the UD network page with your UD ID and UD PIN. Choose Change your password. If the system refuses the new password, log out and start again.

The new password will be effective immediately for most applications. For Web applications secured by an .htaccess file, the password will become effective the following day.

Students: If you do not have a PIN, do not know your UD ID or have any other problems, go to the Student Services Building. If you are not on the Newark campus, dial 302-831-2132.

Faculty/staff: If you cannot log in with your UD ID and PIN, contact your HR Liason.
