Mailboxes are hosted on Microsoft Exchange (on-premise) and Office 365 technology, so the email is not just only for sending and receiving simple electronic messages. The basic functions of the university email combined with an Outlook client are described below.

 

E-mail access from web and apps

E-mail can be accessed via any browser using the web interface: CTU Mail | Mail Office 365. It is also possible to use desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook (Windows, Mac), Mail (Mac), Mozilla Thunderbird (Windows, Mac, Linux) or native applications for mobile devices iOS, Android, Windows Phone. If you want to use an e-mail client, import the accounts according to the e-mail client settings.

 

The CIC CTU offers to set up the university mailbox in the domain @cvut.cz with the email address Forename.Surname@cvut.cz or Forename.Surname.number@cvut.cz for all workers. And set up the university mailbox in the domain @fit.cvut.cz with the email address Forename.Surname@fit.cvut.cz or username@fit.cvut.cz for FIT workers. See the creating process below.
