Your Email Account has changed

*If you have your U of R email forwarded to another account then no action is required.

As of February 20, 2024

  • Use Microsoft Outlook to login to your email accounts (Webmail is no longer).
  • All Webmail accounts, including emails have automatically transferred to Outlook email and calendar.
  • Use your same and password to login into Outlook online or install the Outlook app on your device.

A couple of things...

  • Alumni accounts in the UofR's M365 tenant switched to 'email only licensing' on March 29th, 2024.
  • This removes any access you may have been using to OneDrive, online Office or Teams.
  • Copy any OneDrive files you might have to another drive before March 29th.
  • This affects you, if you had a account with M365 prior to the start of the UofR migration to M365. Signing up for this free access with your UofR email prior to this transition created an account behind the scenes in the UofR M365 tenant. Microsoft has no way to detect your transition to Alumni so your M365 account remains active as the UofR account with only email access. 
  • You have the option to sign up for a personal home version with an alternate email with Microsoft.


How will I know if my Webmail has transfered to Outlook?
  • You will be able to log into Outlook and you will see all your emails from Webmail have transfered to your new account as of February 20, 2024.
Will I retain access to Webmail after the transition to Outlook?
  • Your access to Webmail will no longer be active after 7:00 AM, February 20, 2024.
Will my contact lists transfer from Webmail to Outlook?
  • Yes, your contact lists will move to Outlook.
What if I have my Webmail fowarded to another email account?
  • If you set up forwarding to another email address, it will remain forwarded.
  • No action is required.
What if I am an Alumni but also an employee at the University of Regina?
  • Go to the M365 Hub, select Employee, and review information on that page.
What if I'm an Alumni, but I'm a student again at the U of R?
  • Go to the M365Hub, select Student, and review information on that page.
What if I haven't logged into Webmail in over a year and it's not fowarded anywhere?
  • Then you don't have access to the account anymore, since it expired after one year of non-use.
What if I use my for a personal M365 account already?
You'll have to choose between personal account or work/school account when you login, and your will continue to work.
