UU Gmail problems

I don't receive my emails anymore

Are you a student and did you recently start a part-time job at Utrecht University? Then You will have Solis-mail from now on. Log onto Solis-mail using your Solis-id and password. All emails sent to your UU Gmail are automatically forwarded to your Solis-mail.

Would you rather keep using your UU Gmail account? You are able to configure this yourself using this manual.

Account access temporarily disabled

There could be a problem with the payment of your tuition. However there might other causes; please contact the IT Service Desk.

When I want to access my personal Gmail, I am redirected to UU-Gmail

Delete cookies from your browser and try again. You can do this by pressing (browser independent) CTRL + SHIFT + DEL.

UU Gmail after graduation

After you have graduated, you can still receive (and send) emails for a period of six months; the so called the grace period. After this your UU Gmail account will be closed. So ensure timely:

  • To inform all your contacts of your new email address (or use an automatic reply).
  • That you save your important emails and secure your data (elsewhere). You can do this by making a copy of the data from your account via google takeout.

 

APPLICATION SPECIFIC PASSWORD (IMAP)

We strongly advice to use the Gmail app from Google on your mobile device (downloadable from Google Play or the Appstore) or check your UU-Gmail via your browser on a PC. When you make use of an application that doesn't support two factor authentication, you'll have to configure an application specific password within your UU-Gmail. To do so, follow this instruction guide.
