Dear Faculty and Staff:

Recently, we implemented a password policy which affects your OSSES ID, your email ID, your network ID, and your wireless accounts as the credentials are the same.

If you encounter problems when logging into our online email system, your password might have expired. Please go to OSSES to change your current password.

Welcome to Office 365

What is Office 365?

When you enroll, a Office 365 e-mail account will be automatically generated for you. Although Microsoft hosts the e-mail, CUNY maintains control. This student e-mail system is based on Windows Live Hotmail, the most-used Webmail service in the world, although it is customized and co-branded by each CUNY College. Office 365 provides current students and alumni with a set of communications and collaboration services, such as e-mail, shared calendar, and address book.

Why use Office 365?

Office 365 offers significant advantages to students throughout CUNY, such as:

  • 25 GB of storage space – Now you can e-mail that long thesis to your professor.

  • It's never down! Office 365 is hosted on servers managed by Microsoft to provide the highest levels of reliability and performance.

  • It's all about the look! Your e-mail is hosted on a new Web 2.0 e-mail system with an intuitive and customizable desktop look and feel.

  • Connect to your classmates more efficiently! Many of your classmates will be using Office 365, so use the Web-based shared calendar, post files on SkyDrive, send meeting requests, and use other cool collaboration tools to coordinate both academic and non-academic activities.

  • Receive updates: Receive college-related updates from admin staff.

  • Control spam and viruses through filtering - Microsoft offers increased spam protection and filtering with your Office 365 account.

  • Keep your account even after you graduate. Your e-mail account will not be deleted after you graduate - only its look and feel will change. However, to ensure that your messages and files are kept intact, you must login to your account at least once every 365 days, otherwise your content will be cleared, while your e-mail account remains.

  • We're not done yet! CUNY will work with Microsoft to continue enhancing the Office 365 platform.

Getting started with Office 365

I'm already a student. Will my current e-mail address change?

Students from all over CUNY will have a standard e-mail account, such as: firstname.lastname@stu.bcc.cuny.edu. Provided that there are no name conflicts, your e-mail ID should remain the same. For example, if there is more than one "John Smith" on your campus, one person's ID will be "John.Smith" and the second "John.Smith1".

I'm a new student. What's my e-mail address?

The convention for generating e-mail accounts is firstname.lastname@stu.bcc.cuny.edu.

How do I check my e-mail?

Simple:

  1. Go to http://www.bcc.cuny.edu/email
  2. Click on Student E-mail
  3. Click on login. You will be directed to the Microsoft Windows Office 365 login page.
  4. Enter your full student e-mail address -- e.g. firstname.lastname@stu.bcc.cuny.edu and your password.

Who is eligible for Office 365?

All registered students and alumni. Faculty and staff are not eligible for Office 365.

Student Experience with Office 365

Is Office 365 required?

Yes. Accounts will be created for you automatically. We highly recommend that you login to your account frequently to review important information sent by your college's faculty, staff, and administration, some of which might be time sensitive.

How many e-mails can I send per day?

E-mails sent between users in your college do not count against the daily maximum. You can send OUT from your Office 365 account 500 e-mails per day to addresses outside the CUNY system. Each e-mail is essentially an alias in the To, Cc, or Bcc line. That means you can send 100 mails to 5 people or 5 messages to 100 people, etc.

Do I need to use a Windows PC with Microsoft Internet Explorer?

No. All the Web-based services included in Microsoft Office 365 can be accessed from Windows, Mac, or Linux using Internet Explorer or Firefox. Safari and other browsers are also supported. Microsoft has an Open Standards mentality with this product and will continue to have the philosophy of offering flexibility to users.

Microsoft tests against a variety of Web browsers and supports the major browsers across a variety of operating system platforms. If you are using Internet Explorer 6 or 7, you must upgrade to a newer version.

Can I check my account using my mobile phone?

If your mobile phone has a mail client installed, you can configure it to check your Office 365 account via an IMAP connection, using the settings above.
