    our school email addresses- "rossmed.edu" or "students.rossu.edu"

    Advertisements



    This is for both sign-in and for sending emails.

    as far as I can tell, for sign-in you NEED to use "students.rossu.edu"

    but for sending mail, the "rossmed.edu" thing works?

    not sure what you're trying to do, if you mean set up email on phone or outlook or whatever then you need students.rossu.edu however the server you need is pod51004.outlook.com for both incoming and outgoing.

    What I'm getting at is-- what is the point of the "rossmed.edu" email address? A couple things I've signed up for use it, and using it forwards to my mailbox, but I dont want this weird address to suddenly stop working one day, if the "students..rossu.edu" address is the official one.

    I was told by a friend who had a similar issue [in a US school], that they were told it's Microsoft who is dictating these weird email addresses, which has something to do with their migration to Office 365.

    1) the current is students.rossu.edu, the rossmed.edu is old and will probably stop forwarding at some point. If you stick with students.rossu.edu you should be fine.
    2) you should never have a school email as primary because who knows how long they will keep it for you after you graduate. You should have your own email by now and use that for anything you need. I say this b/c anything Ross sends you will be sent to students.rossu.edu so anyone else using rossmed.edu wouldn't be Ross and thus probably shouldn't go to school email.
