What is ONID?

MyONID is the web interface used to view and modify many settings related to your ONID e-mail, web space, and printing. From this site you can also visit the ONID Webmail interface.

Who can use ONID?

Anyone who has a valid ONID account can login to, and use the MyONID interface.

Learn about who is eligible for an ONID account.

How do I access ONID?

Go to http://onid.oregonstate.edu/ and click the "Login to ONID" link on the left (just below the "ONID - OSU Network ID" banner). After entering your ONID username and password, you will be greeted with the MyONID web interface.

How do I use ONID?

The ONID links can be a little mysterious when you first visit the page.  Below are explanations of what you can do in each section:

 


Back to Top

ONID Email:

This link will redirect your web browser to the appropriate page where you check ONID email.

  • Please be aware that what you do with your email here is final.  If you delete an email here, you are deleting it from the server.  In very few cases, email can be recovered - but please do not count on it being possible - be careful with your email account!

Disk Quota:

The Disk Quota page will display: your current disk space usage; how much disk space is allotted (currently 2GB or 2048MB); and when your ONID disk space is set to expire. This is the most accurate way to determine your ONID disk space usage.

Mail Quota:

The Mail Quota page lists the amount of space your ONID e-mail is currently using, the mailbox quota (currently 500 MB), as well as the Limit (aka Hard Cap) at which you will no longer receive email.

A table is also available, showing the breakdown of your space usage by folder. Nested folders will look like this:

Inbox.SubFolder.SubFolder

Corresponds to the following (in the web interface):

Inbox
|-Subfolder
   |-Subfolder

Manage Mail:

Manage Mail controls your forwarding, spam block, Filters, and Out of Office settings.

To learn more about how to use this section, view our Manage Mail Help.

Print Usage:

Aside from a detailed list of all of your print jobs, you can also see what your current Pages Printed count is (both for the current billing period, and lifetime), your last print location, your current balance, and your last billed date. You are provided at first with a brief summary of all your print jobs, if you want to view a more detailed list click on "Detailed List of Print Jobs" which resides under the table.

This section is very useful if you are trying to figure out where that extra expense on your University bill came from, and the detailed list can help you view everything you've ever billed to your ONID account.

Edit Quick Links:

Quick Links are the list of websites found on the first page of ONID (under the "MyONID Info" section). You can create as many as 25 links to websites that you frequently visit.  Class websites, research sites, library links are all useful links. This can be a very handy tool if you frequently access class websites that  have long URL's or are difficult to remember.

Web Database:

ONID and Central Web Services have combined forces to bring every student access to a MySQL database (current version 4.1) for use with many different server side applications. A few examples being a forum, photo gallery, blog, and pretty much any other database heavy web application!

From here you can modify your database administrator username, password, your database password, and even find useful links to sites related to the MySQL technology being provided.

Change Password:

A list of the requirements for creating a password, as well as a brief explanation for the security policies is given on this page. Below that, you will find a place to reset your password. You must enter your current password, then type a new one twice. The included password strength meter allows for you to see how strong a password your selection is. You should always aim for the "Strongest" level.
