- About Deakin
The Email and calendar service provides all staff and students with an electronic mailbox and calendar which can be accessed via the internet (by staff and students) and on staff workstations through the Outlook or Entourage applications. Students who have Outlook or Entourage installed on their laptop or home computer can access their Deakin email account using these applications.
Anywhere that the internet is available Deakin staff and students can access and use their email account through a web browser using Outlook Web Access.
Staff who use a Deakin University Workstation Scheme (DUWS) computer will have either Outlook (Windows) or Entourage (Mac) installed for use. Alternatively, staff can download the applications from the Deakin Software Library.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students have a mailbox storage quota of 200mb, while postgraduate by research students have a mailbox storage quota of 500mb. Staff have a mailbox storage quota of 1gb.
email antivirus and spam filtering are provided by DeS as part of all email related services.
DeS aims to achieve 98.5% availability of this service each calendar month.
Email inbox and spam/virus filtering: DeS is centrally funded to provide this service to all Deakin University staff and students.
External parties and events: Provision of email for the purposes of use by external parties and events will be quoted and charged for on an individual basis.
The Research Contact Management Tool (RCMT) allows current staff members, research students and research visitors to set up an email redirect address that can be used while at Deakin as well as kept after leaving Deakin.
The address is in the format <name>@research.deakin.edu.au with <name> being chosen by the person setting the account up from a dropdown list of options. The created address can be redirected to any email address of the creators' choosing but can't be used as a standalone email address as it is purely a redirect and has no associated storage space.
The creator of the redirect address will be automatically contacted every six months at his/her nominated email address to verify whether the @research.deakin.edu.au redirect address is still required.
