These instructions apply to alumni setting up their @cantab.ac.uk email addresses after graduation. It also applies to 2018/19 alumni who were provided with an @alumni.cam.ac.uk email address and find it necessary to update their email clients after their email was migrated into the @cantab.ac.uk domain and their email address changed.

Alumni @cantab.ac.uk email accounts

     Changes to 2018/19 alumni email accounts

For further information about the change made to your alumni email account, please see: Changes to your alumni email account

If you're a student of the University and graduated from summer 2018 onwards, you're entitled to an @cantab.ac.uk email address with an Exchange Online mailbox.

You should get an email from the Development and Alumni Relations office about setting this up around the time you complete your studies. If you haven't received an email and think you should have, please contact them at alumniemail@admin.cam.ac.uk.

Once you have your account, you can migrate the contents of your student @cam.ac.uk mailbox to your new alumni account.

You can log in to the Outlook Web App with your CRSid@cantab.ac.uk email address and your Raven password, or set up your preferred email app.
