Ospreys Email Frequently Asked Questions

Student Email Account Changes Made May 7
In order to provide better collaboration with the Office 365 tools, students now have an email account in the same environment as faculty and staff. During this transition, students will have two UNF mailboxes, their old one that uses "N-number@ospreys.unf.edu" and a new one that uses "N-number@unf.edu." Starting Tuesday, May 7, email communication from University systems will be delivered to the @unf.edu account only. Students will select the "Email" tile in myWings to access their new email account.

Students will want to log in to their Ospreys account by selecting the "Old Email" tile in myWings and activate automatic forwarding so any email still being sent to their Ospreys account is redirected to the new account. It's recommended students also turn on an "Automatic reply" notice that directs email senders to contact them at their new @unf.edu address. Both the UNF and Ospreys accounts will be active for a period of time to enable transition to the new Office 365 environment. Communication will be sent prior to the Ospreys account being deactivated. Additional information on the changes to the email account.
