Manual configuration

If the automatic configuration does not succeed you can follow the same procedure up to step 4 and click the “Manual configuration” button. You now have to fill in the fields with the following information:

  • Username: ad\your_unil_username
  • Password : your_unil_password

Limitations due to Android & workarounds

Android is for the time being limited in its support of the Exchange services:

  • there is only one colour for calendars
  • there is no support of tasks and notes systems

These applications allow you to work around these issues (the Ci does however not guarantee that they work and offers no support whatsoever for them):

UNIL e-mail with your private e-mail address

Use your UNIL e-mail with your private email address

Only for students!

If you choose to do so, you are entrusting your own data to companies that are external to the UNIL; this is why the Centre informatique does not offer any support regarding the utilisation of these websites and can in no means be held responsible for any kind of damage that were to happen due to your use of these websites or emails that do are not redirected to the destination mailbox. What arrives in your UNIL mailbox is what counts.

Concerning the university staff, using an external service may go against the internal UNIL directives.

Transfer your e-mails to another e-mail address

1. Log into https://owa.unil.ch with your UNIL credentials.
2. Go to the “Options” menu

7. Click on the “Save” button
