My Email

What is My E-Mail?

All UW-Superior students, faculty and staff have a email account. Your e-mail address is, 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

Accessing Your E-Mail

New 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.

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
