Email & Calendars

I am a Harvard College student. Why can't I log into Skype or other Office 365 applications?

As a Harvard College student, your email, calendaring, and social applications are supported by Google. Your college.harvard.edu account is a Gmail account. It also gives you access to the Google Education Suite, including: Drive, Hangouts, Chats, Calendar, Sites and more. You do not have access to Microsoft Exchange products, which include, Outlook online, Calendar online and Skype for Business. You do have access to most Microsoft products including: SharePoint, Yammer, Microsoft Forms and the Office Online for Education suite.

CALists Mailing Lists

Description

HUIT offers a mailing list service to Harvard affiliates (using Mailman, an open-source mailing list system). While HUIT provides and maintains the Mailman service for its clients, individual faculty or staff members administer each list as the list owner.

Mailman allows list subscribers and owners to utilize and manage a robust bulk mailing platform using a web interface or by sending email-based commands. Mailman also offers a number of configurable options for individual list owners, including spam filtering and list archiving.

Email Aliasing

An email alias is an alternate email address that directs email to a primary email address. It is generally used in the context of creating an email address like john_harvard@harvard.edu pointing to joh111@harvard.edu or jharvard@fas.harvard.edu. It may also be used to create an email address such as ithelp@harvard.edu pointing to a list or multiple email addresses. Email aliases are governed under policies and guidelines established by the trademark office.
