What is Exchange??
Exchange is a mailbox hosting service that Information Services provides for departments all around campus. Exchange service incluces individual email accounts as well as spam filtering, virus protection, remote access, online public folders, regular patches and upgrades, nightly backups, and a support team.
When you get an Exchange account, it generally comes in the format: Firstname.Lastname@oregonstate.edu.
Who Has Access?
Exchange accounts are provided for individual departments who pay for the service. Generally you receive an Exchange account as a full time employee or student worker for one of those departments, but it can be assigned to you by a department for other reasons. A full list of departments that use Exchange can be found here. If you are interested in obtaining an exchange account, please talk with your department head, or your department DCA.
