UMail on the Web: Access Your UMass Email from Any Computer

Note: As of Fall 2013, all undergraduates use Apps at UMass Amherst for their University email. 

UMail will be retired in 2019 as it has reached end-of-life and will no longer be supported. Graduate students can switch to Google Mail in spring 2019. Faculty and staff will receive additional information in summer/fall 2019.

UMail on the Web is UMass Amherst's Web-based email system. It provides members of the university community access to their email account from any computer with an Internet connection.
