 General Information
Student Email

There’s a new student email system on campus. This system will add Exchange server functionality and collaboration, as well as enhanced support for mobile devices.  It is important that you check your UNCSA mail to receive student information. Both your teachers and your administration will use this account to contact you.

  • The maximum size for an attachment has been increased from 10 MB to 25MB. The size limit includes the message, encoding, and the attachment, if you added one.
  • The maximum number of attachments for each e-mail message has been increased from 50 to 125.
  • You now can send a message to as many as 100 recipients at a time. A public group is considered a single recipient.
  • Also, if you're using a POP3 or IMAP4 e-mail program to get your e-mail, your limit for sending messages is 25 messages per minute. For more information about these and other limits, see Message and Recipient Limits.
