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.
