Create an email auto-reply or out-of-office message

How to create an email auto-reply message. Students can use auto-reply if you will be away from Amherst for a time or graduating seniors can use auto-reply to notify people about their new email addresses. Faculty and staff can use email auto-reply for when you are away, on vacation, out of the office, or otherwise unavailable by email. Anyone leaving Amherst can use auto-reply to notify people of your new or preferred email address.

Voicemail/Integrated Messaging

The College's voicemail system integrates the voicemail on your campus phone with your email. When someone leaves you a voicemail, the system sends you an email with the message attached. You can retrieve messages using either your phone or by accessing your email.

Alumni Email Forwarding

Upon request, the College will provide any alumnus or alumna with a forwarding email address in the form:
amherst_username@alumni.amherst.edu

Email and Calendaring

Amherst students, faculty, and staff automatically receive an Amherst email mailbox when they join the College. Casual employees receive a mailbox at the request of their supervisor. Student organizations can request an email account or a listserv mailing list by using the Campus Center's student organization registration form.

The College email servers run Microsoft Exchange, which provides Email, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and other functions. Your messages and other data remain on the server until you explicitly delete them.

For best operation and access to College calendars, we recommend you use Microsoft Outlook for Windows or Macintosh.

For those who want email only and do not need to use College calendars, we also fully support IMAP email applications such as Mozilla Thunderbird.

For quick email checks—especially when travelling—use the online version of Amherst email, Web Mail, the Outlook Web App (OWA).
