Email and Digests

What is My E-Mail?

All UW-Superior students, faculty and staff have a email account. Your e-mail address is username@uwsuper.edu, where "username" is your E-Hive login ID username. On campus, PC users use Microsoft Outlook and Mac users use Microsoft Entourage software, found on your computer, to access your email. Off-campus Web access is available through My E-Hive or by using this shortcut https://www.uwsuper.edu/email

Accessing Your E-Mail

New Students

Your E-Hive Login ID provides you access to the university network and your university E-mail in campus labs, classrooms, offices, and residence halls. Your E-Hive Login ID is provided to you at SOAR. If you don't attend SOAR, you receive your login ID by mail after your enrollment.

Returning Students

You will continue to use the same E-Hive Login ID throughout your enrollment.  If you have forgotten your password, you can use the reset on the E-Hive login page or contact the Technology Help Desk.

New Faculty and Staff

As a part of the hiring process, your username and initial password will be generated - these credentials are used for email, E-Hive, UW System portal, library resources, Learn@UWSuperior (D2L), Handshake, and other University systems. Human Resources will provide you with an activation letter either by mail or in person on your first day of work. You can contact the Technology Help Desk if you require assistance with activating your account.

Returning Faculty and Staff

Common E-Mail Problems

  • If you are receiving "mail box full" messages, clean out your Deleted Mail folder, your Sent Items folder, and as many old e-mail messages as possible, especially those with attachments.
  • If you are not receiving emails from certain people, make sure they are not on your blocked senders list.
  • If you are not able to send emails to a certain person, there are several things to try:
    • Check their email address, make sure it is correct
    • Make sure you are not on their blocked senders list
    • Make sure their inbox is not full
    • Make sure the subject line does not contain words that might be considered spam
  • If your Microsoft Outlook Inbox says you are "offline", look in the lower right corner of the program window and click on the offline icon.  This will help get you back online.

Getting Your E-Mail Anywhere

When you're off campus, you can read your UW-Superior e-mail from a Web browser anywhere in the world by using the Outlook Mail Web Access. Instructions to access your mailbox are available on the login page.

Campus E-Mail Digests

Students receive the Student Digest and Staff and Faculty receive the Staff Digest.

Directives from Campus Administration and announcements of a health or safety nature are the only communication sent to the "everyone" staff or student distribution list. These could include construction updates, service outage notices, service restoration notices, safety, weather information, emergencies.
