Email at CUMC

Faculty, staff and students receive an email account when they begin working at CUMC or enrollment in Medical Center classes, or can request one if needed. The address format is, where uni is your own Columbia UNI (ex: abc1234). NOTE: CUMC email accounts may also be referred to as Exchange or Office 365, which is simply the type of mail system.

Getting Started
Once you are notified that your CUMC email account has been created:
  1. Be sure that your account is active by signing in to Web Outlook.
  2. Set up a profile on the myPassword site and make sure that you have changed your password from any default/initial one that was provided to you.
    If you have already been using an MC domain (computer/network drive login) account with a password you selected, continue to use that password. It synchronizes with CUMC email.
  3. Verify that mail forwarding from your address has been set up via the Manage My UNI page.
    IMPORTANT: Email Use at CUMC prohibits automatic forwarding of your messages to an outside provider such as Gmail, iCloud, etc. and can result in permanent loss of incoming messages. Individual messages can be manually forwarded when in compliance with email, data protection or other relevant requirements.
  4. Set up your email on your computer and mobile device.
Links in the left column offer more help including using Secure Email for sending sensitive information outside of CUMC, changing your password, using signatures, scheduling, archiving and more in Outlook on Windows and Macintosh, managing space, spam and junk messages, mailing lists, FAQs and more.
