I don't remember my uniqname (iMpact login name) or password, who can I contact?

Click here if you don't remember your uniqname or password or contact the ITCS Accounts Office at 734.764.8000.

Is forwarded email automatically deleted from the UMich server?

The Lifetime Email Forwarding system is a forwarding service only. Email messages sent to your "@umich.edu" email address do not "live" on the UMich server, but are automatically forwarded to the email address you have indicated in the U-M Online Directory (i.e. hotmail.com, yahoo.com, etc.).

Why can't I send email FROM my "@umich.edu" email address?

The reason you can't send email from your "@umich.edu" email address is because it is an email forwarding address only, not an email account. If you are interested in purchasing an email account from the University of Michigan, visit U-M Online at http://www.umonline.umich.edu and click "Member Services."

I want to change my existing uniqname. How can I do this?

If you would like to change your existing uniqname, contact the ITCS Accounts Office at 734.764.8000 or itcs.accounts.office@umich.edu.

Why do I have to go to iMpact and enter my email address after I set up my Lifetime Email Forwarding?

The U-M Online Directory is not connected to the iMpact Alumni Directory, so entering your Lifetime Email Forwarding address into the U-M Online Directory does not update iMpact. It is important for you to enter your preferred email address in iMpact so alumni and students can contact you for networking purposes. Also, by entering your email address Development & Alumni Relations can send you our e-newsletter, MichiganMail.
