New to SMU?

The SMU Email account is created in conjunction with the normal account creation process. For students, this process occurs upon acceptance into the University. Faculty and Staff accounts are created automatically based on employment data.

 Please Note: POP & IMAP configuration is no longer available for faculty/staff accounts. For more details on configuration options, visit the Faculty/Staff Configuration page.

Email Security
