Email Provisioning

UF Business Email

For all University of Florida workforce (Faculty, Staff, Employees, UAA, Shands & all other DSO’s) your business email, the email location where the University communicates to you, must be value@%.ufl.edu (Normally the “value” is your GatorLink ID).

Examples:

johndoe@physics.ufl.edu
allygator@ufl.edu
albert@housing.ufl.edu

Exceptions to this rule include:

value@proton.org, value@flvc.org, value@floridapolytechnic.org, value@ba.shands.org, value@orlandohealth.com, @floridaproton.org and @flpoly.org

If you have an exception that needs to be added to this list please contact the IAM Team (BA-BridgesIAMADMIN@bridges.ufl.edu).

*All students must have a UF Business Email of GatorLinkID@ufl.edu.

 

Deliver-To Email Address

In order to meet legal and compliance obligations relating to security and retention of electronic records, the University of Florida prohibits the auto-forwarding of business-related electronic mail. The new General Counsel Policy was put forth Spring 2014, UFIT will provide support to help enforce new policy.

UF workforce will be able to set a ‘Deliver-To’ email address that follows the same guidelines as the above UF Business Email.

Example:

UF Business Email: allygator@ufl.edu                                Deliver-To Email: allygator@proton.org

You will be able to make changes to your UF Business or ‘Deliver-To’ email address by going to my.ufl.edu > Main Menu > My Account > Manage UF Business Email or by contacting your Identity Coordinator.

For most users your ‘Deliver-To’ will be set to GatorLinkID@mail.ufl.edu, this is for your email to be routed into your exchange account. Until Webmail accounts are officially retired you should not edit your ‘Deliver-To’ address unless you have an external account, example: username@shands.ufl.edu.

*These new Business and Deliver-To Email rules will affect incoming workforce and those who wish to change either of these email addresses, all others that do not comply will be ‘grandfathered in’ until a future date.
