Export email

USI provides e-mail to current students, alumni and employees.  When you cease to hold one of these roles, we may remove your e-mail mailbox.

Our system is always checking to see if former students/applicants have reached a "No Role" status.  When this happens the Microsoft license is removed from that account.

Every Fall term we have many accounts that reach a No Role status.  Occasionally, we attempt to warn people when this will happen.  You may have reached this web site because you received an email like the following:

This is an important message from USI Information Technology.

Our records indicate you are no longer a current student at USI, and have not graduated. On xx/xx/xx your USI Eagles email account and OneDrive storage space will be deleted. If you have recently re-enrolled for the Fall 2017 term, you can ignore this message. Otherwise, you should plan on saving any messages and files you have on the USI Eagles email system and OneDrive file storage prior to the xx/xx/xx date.

If you need any assistance or believe our records are inaccurate, please contact the USI IT Help Desk. Please provide your name, email address, telephone number and the reason you believe that your account should not be deleted. If you are questioning if this is a valid email from USI, look up the IT Help Desk phone number on the USI web site and give us a call.
