How can UFV students access their UFV email account?

  • Your student email account is automatically made available when you log into myUFV.
  • You can also access your email directly on the internet at https://mymail.ufv.ca.
  • The student email address is formatted firstname.lastname@student.ufv.ca except numeric values may be added when duplicate names exist.
  • Always use your own email address and account and do not share it with others.

How can UFV employees access their UFV email account?

  • myUFV gives you access to your existing UFV e-mail account.
  • You can also access your email directly on the internet at http://webmail.ufv.ca/.
  • Your email address is formatted firstname.lastname@ufv.ca with some exceptions as Outlook email accounts are created manually.

How can I auto-forward my student email to another email address?

  • Many email clients available as internet downloads can access the student email system using POP and IMAP account type settings.
  • You need to log in to your second email account and use the options menu to configure its advanced settings.
  • POP/IMAP settings:
    • Username: 9 digit student ID
    • Password: 8-12 digit PIN
  • At UFV
    • Inbound = mymail.ufv.ca
    • Outbound = mymail.ufv.ca
  • At Home
    • Inbound = mymail.ufv.ca
    • Outbound = your own ISP setting
  • Be aware of possible negative effects of auto fowarding:
    • The auto-forwarding target account may fail to receive or accept your UFV email for some reason (i.e. attachments are too large, it marks it as SPAM, or just is unavailable).
    • If you chose to leave a copy of the mail on the UFV server, we suggest you regularly delete old messages so your storage limit is not exceeded resulting in your incoming UFV email being rejected.

If I change my name, will my email address automatically update to this change?

  • No, your email address will not be automatically updated if you change your name.
  • Automatically changing an email address with a name change may cause considerable harm for an individual who is heavily invested in an existing address.
  • If you chose to change your email address to reflect your new name, please contact the IT Service Desk.

What happens to my student email account after I graduate or I interrupt my studies at UFV?

  • Changing your student status will not affect your UFV student email account.
  • You will still have access to your UFV student email after you graduate or take time off from your studies.
