Eagles Mail / Office 365 mail / OWA are all the same
Important mail from your instructors and the University will be sent to your USI email account. It is IMPERATIVE that you access your USI email on a regular basis.
If you prefer to use an email account other than the one provided you by USI, you can forward your USI email to a functioning account that you access regularly. If you forward to a non-functioning or non-existent email account, you could potentially lose important email messages. It is your responsibility to periodically test the forward to see that it works.
Eagles Mail is the university email service provided to all USI students. New students are assigned an email address upon admission to the University. Student email addresses are based on myUSI usernames. If your username is sjsmith10, then your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Important mail from your instructors and the University will be sent to your USI email account so it is imperative that you access your USI email on a regular basis.
Delete a message simply by clicking on the message and then clicking the “Delete“ button at the top of the email message list.
This will send the message to your “Deleted Items” folder (trash can icon).
In order to permanently delete the messages, you must delete them from the “Deleted Items” folder. All messages may be deleted by right clicking on the “Deleted Items” folder and selecting “Empty deleted items” or you may individually delete or recover messages by opening the folder and selecting them.
Your Eagles Mail quota is 50 Gigabytes (50 GB) of space across all of your email folders.
Moving messages into a folder still counts against your overall quota. This includes moving mail into your Deleted and Sent folders.
Your quota is very large and you should never have problems with running out of space, but if you do just delete some older emails.
Select a message by clicking on the message or select multiple messages by holding down the “Ctrl” key and selecting multiple messages.
Do one of two things:
Step 1: To setup forwarding, first logon to your Eagles Mail account via the Web.
Step 2: Look for the Settings Gear icon at the top right of the screen, click on it.
Step 3: Under Settings, click in the Search bar and type "Forwarding" then click on "Forwarding".
Step 4b (TO UNFORWARD): On the Forwarding screen, check the box that says "Stop Forwarding" and click "Save" when finished.
Create Rule to move messages to folder based upon sender address or specific words in the subject. Two Step Process
First: Turn on the Junk Filter
Second: Create Rules to Block Messages By keyword or sender address
Create a Rule if you are repeatedly getting the same kind of email
Example: "Click here to apply for a $500/ a week job" filter by "specific words in subject" option
If a specific email keeps sending various messages filter by "move messages from someone" option
Name the Rules and be sure to Click Save at the Bottom.
If you graduate from USI, you will get the Alumni role added to your profile and you will have access to your e-mail account indefinitely (our lawyers won't let us say forever). If you cease to be a student, or employee, without the Alumni Role, we will remove your Microsoft license. This deletes your email account. This will also remove the license to the Microsoft Office software. The Microsoft Office software is available to Students and Employees (not alumni).
Tips to export your e-mail before it is deleted are Here.
Pilotusi.onmicrosoft.com is the initial domain created with Microsoft for Office 365. EVERY USI account on Office 365 has this domain associated with its account. It is used ‘behind the scenes’.
To personalize the USI 365 accounts, we were able to add our own domain to each account. We have added EAGLES.USI.EDU to each account. This is the domain we reference when talking about eagles-mail and Office 365 accounts at USI.
If your mail appears to be coming from @pilotusi.onmicrosoft.com, please let the helpdesk know (812.465.1080) and your account can be modified so that your mail appears to come from your @eagles.usi.edu account
