Gmail as primary e-mailaddress
If you are a student and you start working at Utrecht University in addition to your studies (an employee appointment), you will receive a new email address. It ends with @uu.nl (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and it is your so-called Solismail.
All emails sent to you (both to your @students.uu.nl and your @uu.nl email address) are delivered to your Solismail from the moment you commence employment. No new emails will come in at your UU-Gmail*.
Some student-employees want to keep using their UU-Gmail for the handling of their email. If you prefer this, follow the instructions below to set this up. This ensures all your email will be delivered at your UU-Gmail.
* Old emails will remain in your UU-Gmail. Nothing is ever thrown away.
Go to https://outlook.office.com and log in using your employee e-mail address (for example email@example.com).
Go to Settings (gear icon) in the top right corner and click on “View all Outlook settings”.
Click on “Email” and then on “Forwarding”.
Check the box for “Enable forwarding”.
Now fill in your UU address, however, in stead of “@students.uu.nl” at the end you use the following extension “@galias.students.uu.nl”. For example: when your UU address is “firstname.lastname@example.org”, you type “email@example.com”.
Check the box for “Keep a copy of forwarded messages”.
Click “Save’ to save the new rule.
From now on your e-mail can be found in your UU Gmail inbox.
Please note: all e-mails that are send to your UU G-mail address will also be send to your Solis-mail inbox. If you log in there you will also find your e-mails here.
