Getting an E-Mail Account

An email account is automatically created for you once you have a UCR NetID and an entry for you is created in the Enterprise Directory (for faculty & staff; students, please visit the Student E-mail service page). It takes 2 hours after your account is created for the server to be updated and your e-mail account ready for use. You will use your UCR NetID and password to check your e-mail.

Once you have an e-mail account you can use your preferred mail application, such as Eudora, to check your mail.

Changing Your E-Mail Password

You can change your UCR NetID password at http://password.ucr.edu. Note that this will affect all services you log in to with your UCR NetID (e.g. Travel, iLearn, etc.).

Forgotten Passwords

For employees who have a UCR Net ID but who do not know their password, a new temporary password will be assigned once an application for a UCR Net ID is completed.

Once an application for a UCR Net ID is completed, the Department Enterprise Directory Administrator will provide the employee with a new temporary password.

UCR’s Enterprise Directory is updated within two hours of the Department Enterprise Directory Administrator inputting the new temporary password. Once the Enterprise Directory is updated, the temporary password must be changed by visiting http://password.ucr.edu.
