You can access your Exchange mailbox online by visiting webmail.utdallas.edu and logging in with your NetID and password.

Note:

Per the Information Security Office, forwarding emails to a personal email account outside of UT Dallas is dangerous and highly discouraged because the contents are exposed to Internet attackers and a third-party email service which has no contract with UT Dallas.

  • Author: Delegate can read and create items and modify and delete items that he or she creates.
  • Editor: Delegate can read, create, modify and delete all items and files.

Note: When you set up delegate or shared access, delegates or users who share those folders have the ability to view your private contacts, events, or e-mail messages by using other software applications. To help protect your privacy, put private items in a separate, non-shared address book, calendar, or mail folder.

Mobile Device Passcode Requirements

When using Exchange ActiveSync for UT Dallas email, your mobile device will require a passcode be set on the device. Devices such as mobile phones and tablets with email synced to them that do not have a passcode will prompt the user to set one. This policy is meant to reduce the security risks associated with lost or stolen mobile devices that could have UT Dallas email and/or other potentially sensitive data on them.

Additionally, this policy allows users connected to the UT Dallas email system to perform a self-service remote wipe to remove data from a lost or stolen device. Within webmail.utdallas.edu, a user can sign in, select the gear icon for Settings, select Options, select General, select Mobile devices, highlight a device associated that has been lost or stolen, and select the “Wipe all data” option. Many users also have functionality such as “Find My Phone” offered within Apple and Google cloud systems, and these features could be extremely useful to a user with a missing device.

The methods used are not intended to “take control” of personally-owned devices nor does UT Dallas monitor user location or access personal files. UT Dallas does not have control of your overall device, nor do we have a method to access your personal files or perform data backups of the entire device. Users concerned about backing up personal pictures, for example, are responsible for performing backups themselves. Users who do not wish to have screen lockout passcode enforcement may choose at any time to disconnect UT Dallas email with their mobile devices.
