How to access employee email

You can access your email in three different ways:

  • On campus at any UFV office computer
  • By logging into Outlook Web App
  • By logging into your myUFV account

How to log into Outlook

Use your employee computer account username and password to access your email through Outlook. You can access your email from home through the Outlook Web App and logging in using your UFV computer login credentials.

Email security system

IT Services uses an email security system called the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall. This software works to monitor both incoming and outgoing mail, filtering out messages determined to be spam and/or infected with viruses.

Users can check their quarantined messages, classify messages as spam and not spam, manage whitelisting and blacklisting of email addresses, and modify their user preferences using the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall interface. To access your quarantined emails, you will need to enter your UFV email address as your username and your Employee Computer Account password.

A guide to using Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall software can be found in the IT Knowledge Base.
