Mail address #
An email address consists of two parts separated by the at sign (@). The part before the @ is your user name. The part after the @ specifies the organizational structure.
When setting up your account there is an automatically created default e-mail address of the alias “firstname.lastname @ uni-ak.ac.at”. This alias, if necessary can be changed on service.uni-ak.ac.at.
You can also create more mail aliases.
The IT service of the University of Applied Arts Vienna is authorized to delete email aliases that are offensive or inappropriate without asking.
You can automatically forward your own emails from UNI to another email address (this is very practical, especially during the holidays!).
