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. email@example.com) 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 firstname.lastname@example.org).
Go to Settings (gear icon) in the top right corner and click on “View all Outlook settings”.
Click on “Mail” and then on “Rules”. To set up a new rule click “Add new rule”.
In the first field you can give the rule a name. In the second field called “Add a condition” choose “Apply to all messages”.
In the third field called “Add an action” you select “Redirect to”.
Now fill in your UU Gmail 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 Gmail address is “email@example.com”, you type “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Click “Save’ to save the new rule.
If you want to change the rule, click on the pen icon here.
If you want to delete a rule, click on the trashcan icon here.
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.
