Introduction to UTMail
Your UTMail password has to be different from your EID password - you can manage your account by logging in to utmail.utexas.edu and selecting “manage account”.
Your @utexas.edu account is managed by Google - and with it, you have access to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, among other applications. You also get unlimited google drive storage! Use it to back up your papers, files, and assignments! Getting into the habit of using it now can save you a lot of grief later.
For all intents and purposes, your @utexas.edu email is a gmail account. So when you go to add it to your phone, or to outlook, select the option labelled Gmail. Set up should complete automatically.
Please note, however, that not all google services are enabled on your @utexas.edu address. For instance, you are unable to sign up for Youtube, Google Photos, and a handful of other services. The University’s contract unfortunately doesn’t cover these services, and we’re unable to enable them. To access them, try logging into a regular @gmail.com account.
