Accounts firstname.lastname@example.org can be set up for students and employees and can be administrated in UserMap. Employee accounts are managed within the local (on-premise) solution on servers operated by CIC. Student accounts are run in MS Office 365 cloud. However, most faculties offer and prefer their own solutions. They create and manage user accounts in the following form: email@example.com. Accounts and other personal or work accounts can then be imported into web or desktop clients (Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, Gmail…)
