All students attending UMD are given University-assigned e-mail accounts. E-mail is the official means of communication between the University and students. Check this account regularly for important information and messages. It is also recommended that you do not forward your e-mail from this account as you may loose messages or attachments. You can continue to access your UMD E-mail if you are away from campus by logging in through the internet at and using your username and password.

How to Set Up Your E-mail Account

It is very important to always put a subject title in your email, and to be sure to always sign your name at the end of your message. A good way to always have your name and contact information appear at the end of your e-mails is to create a signature block at the bottom or your email which comes up automatically every time you send an e-mail. You can have your name, address or phone number, or even a slogan or favorite expression.

To create a signature block, do the following:

  • log into webmail off the UMD homepage
  • click on the left hand link-mail envelope image
  • click on "options" located at top of page
  • under "General options" click on "Personal Information"
  • make sure "Your Default Identity" is left on Default Identity
  • under "Identity's Name" in Your Full Name-type in your full name and under Your From Address put in your UMD e-mail address. Both will appear in emails that you send
  • go to the last box-the Your Signature area and put in your full name and here you can add your address, phone number, and favorite quote if you choose
