FIU WebMail - Address Format - Address Lists
FIU WebMail To access FIU WebMail go to:
FIU WebMail is an internet web browser based email program. It is accessible any
time and any where you can connect to the internet. Unlike email programs such
as Outlook or Netscape mail systems that you setup on your own computer, FIU
WebMail is a program that is housed on the FIU web server and so it is available
to you from any computer where you can connect to the internet. The FIU
WebMail system has its own spam and virus filter system that filters out the
majority of spam and virus emails that may have been sent to your FIU email account.
If you choose not to use the web based email system, you can set up your FIU email address to work from another existing email
program that you currently use such as Outlook, or you can forward your FIU email to another
existing email account that you have. If you choose either of these options, you
should do so with caution. Unless you are an advanced computer user, you may be best to
keep life simple and just use the webmail.fiu.edu system for all of your school
and program related email communications and keep your personal email as a
separate account and separate email system.
Because your email is housed on the FIU server, you are limited by the amount of
email messages you can keep stored on the server. Messages in your inbox and
sent folder remain until you delete them and count towards your total email
quota. If you have email messages you want to keep, it is best to COPY the
message and then PASTE it into a new WORD or NOTEPAD document and then SAVE it
to a FOLDER you have created such as "EMAILS to KEEP" folder. Messages in your
FIU webmail trash or junk-mail folders will automatically be deleted after 30
days. However, depending upon the volume of messages, or file size of
email attachments you may accumulate, it is still possible that the automatic
deletion will not always be sufficient to keep you under quota. Therefore, you should delete old incoming
messages, copies of sent messages, and messages in the trash on a regular basis.
You must specifically delete the TRASH folder in your email account, otherwise
as the "trashed" messages accumulate in this folder for 30 days and will be
adding to your quota usage. Once you exceed your account quota limit, any new
messages are bounced back to the sender, until you bring your account back under
quota. If you have email forwarded from your FIU account to another personal account like yahoo mail, Bellsouth, etc. the
messages to your FIU account continue to remain in your FIU inbox and accumulate
against your quota.
Accessing Your FIU Email for the FIRST time:
To access your email, you need to know your userNAME and password. Your userNAME is
your first initial+first four letters of your last name+001 (or 002, 003 etc if there
are other FIU students with the same first+last combination). Your password is
initially set up using your date of birth. The generic format of your email
password is the two-digit birth month, two-digit birth day, and the four-digit
For example, if your birth date is 05/07/1915, then your password is 05071915.
Once you log into the FIU Webmail system, you should
change your password.

Setting up your FIU WebMail
When you fist log into the FIU Webmail, you should be prompted to change your
password from the generic date of birth format to a new and unique password that
you select. If you were not prompted to changed your password automatically then
you should do so when you first log onto FIU WebMail by clicking on the OPTIONS
tab on the left had side menu bar, then select the option to CHANGE PASSWORD at
the top of the screen.
Also when you first log onto FIU WebMail, please click on the PREFERENCES tab on
the left-hand side to access the preference features to include your name in your email messages, add a signature block, and other features.
The ANP Program requires that all Program Email Communications be made using an
FIU email address. Additionally we require the email address be in the
email@example.com format and that the
name of the student be displayed along with the email address. The example below
shows how you should set up your full name and email address in the FIU webmail
If you are setting up your email to work in another email program such as
Outlook, please set up the display name and email address as shown above.
Your FIU email address works as either
UserName@fiu.edu or First.Last@fiu.edu
With either format, email will go to you. However, we require that you use the
format of First.Last@fiu.edu. This
format is called your alias email, meaning that is another name for your
UserName. If you want to request a different name to be used for your First.Last
format you may request this change through University Technology Services using
Online Email Alias Request Form.
To access FIU WebMail go to:
FIU Email Set-Up Confirmation
When you have completed your FIU Email Set-Up, please send an email message
from your FIU Email Account to Dr. Groom and Ms DeLaGuardia to confirm your email
set-up. We will not send a reply, the confirmation is for us to confirm you
have completed the set-up with your name and email format. Also, if you change
your email alias (firstname.lastname@example.org
format) please be sure to advise us so that we may update your email address. If
you have any question as to whether your email is functional, send an email to
yourself and you will know immediately if your mail is functioning.
Adding Individual Addresses to the Addressbook in FIU WebMail
By creating an address book you can compose email and use the address book to
remember the email address of colleagues, classmates, etc. There is no easy way
to create individual addresses other than one at a time. The process can be made
a bit easier for creating individual class member addresses by opening the
class list of
residents in one window and the
page in a second window. Then using copy and paste, you can jump between the
two windows, copy an email address from the list and paste it to the address
tab for each of the two windows will appear in the task bar (usually at the
bottom of your screen unless you moved it to the top or sides). Clicking on the
tab or each page will switch between the two pages. As an alternative, you can
resize the two windows to fit on the screen at the same time and go back and
forth between the two. The steps below outline the process for adding names and
email addresses to the address book of the FIU webmail system:
From the sidebar of the webmail page, click Addresses,
then click ADD CONTACT. A form for entering new
address names appears.
Now switch to the Resident list page. COPY the
email address of the individual you want to add to your addressbook.
Switch back to the page to ADD CONTACT in the E-mail field,
PASTE the email address you just copied.
In the Nickname field, type the name of the individual.....or
PASTE the email address again. Nicknames and email
addresses can NOT be the same....but once you have PASTEed the address, you can
use the backspace key to erase the "@fiu.edu" part of the address and then just
the name is left.
Click DONE to save the email address in the
It will take several times of jumping between the Resident list and ADD CONTACT but, the cut and paste solution is faster than retyping all of the
Creating a Group Address List in FIU WebMail
By creating a group address list, you can create a shortcut that refers to many
addresses at once.
The following is an example of an address list:
Name of list = Studygroup
When you compose a message and put the name Studygroup
in the To: field of the Compose page, the e-mail
message goes to all the email addresses in "Studygroup" at once.
To create an address list, log into your FIU WebMail and then proceed as listed:
The individual email address of the people you want to add to a group must be
listed in your address book first. Use the selection ADD CONTACTS to add
individual email addresses to the webmail address book.
From the sidebar of the webmail page, click Address Book, then click
GROUPS and then click ADD
GROUP. A form for entering group address names appears.
In the Group Name field, enter a name for the address list you are creating ie…2004
Class, 2003 Class, Studygroup, etc., then click "SET"
Then select the email address from the contact list box on the left. Click ADD,
to mover the address to the Group box on the right. Continue adding each name to
your group. When you are finished, click "DONE"
If you wish to email the entire class and do not have a class group created,
COPY the entire list of addresses below, and then PASTE the addresses into the
TO: line of your email message. Note To highlight the list, click the LEFT mouse
butto, mover the cursor over the list holding the button and then release. Next
Click the right mouse button and select COPY. To PASTE your list, place the
cursor in to the desired location, then click the right mouse button and select

There are many types of fraud, and e-mail is an inexpensive and thus popular
method for distributing fraudulent messages to potential victims. For your own
protection, never respond to any e-mail message that asks you to send cash or to
provide personal information. The FIU Office of Information Technology Security
has additional information and warnings about email fraud and email schemes that
may appear in your email inbox. See
ITS for additional information on email fraud and other security
