Faculty and Staff Email and Calendar (Office 365)
Email and calendar services for faculty and staff are provided through Cornell's Office 365. Graduate students and undergraduate student employees can also use this system as an alternative to Cmail, the service for students.
Outlook on the Web
An e-list is a way to communicate with a number of people through a single email address. Whenever someone sends a message to an e-list address, that message goes out to everyone subscribed to the list. Participation in e-lists hosted by CIT is free; there are no subscription fees for list owners or list members. Anyone who has access to email can take advantage of the service.
