Office 365



Student to Staff


Student Email vs Staff Email

When a student transitions to a staff role, a new account is created. There are multiple aliases for both a student R'Mail account and an Office 365 account. Below is a list of statements to be aware of when a student becomes staff..

  • Students and alums have accounts on R'Mail. Mail sent to first.last@email.ucr.edu, netID@student.ucr.edu, and netID@ucr.edu go to the R'Mail account.
  • When a student becomes staff, a new mailbox is created within Office 365. Mail sent to first.last@ucr.edu and netID@ucr.edu now get directed to the new Office 365 account.
  • The first.last@email.ucr.edu and netID@student.ucr.edu aliases continue to route to the R'Mail account.
  • When the student is no longer employed in those roles, the Office 365 account is decommissioned. Netid@ucr.edu is then re-associated with the R'Mail account and first.last@ucr.edu becomes an undeliverable address.
  • Netid@ucr.edu is the only alias that changes its routing to the appropriate email box dependent upon student vs staff
