Email

Available To: Faculty, Staff, Students

Northern Arizona University believes that it is important to provide services using the most efficient means possible for its students and employees. Toward that end, Email is considered an official method for communication at Northern Arizona University (NAU) for its students and employees because it delivers information in a convenient, timely, cost effective, and environmentally aware manner. Not only is Email a more efficient and effective communication medium, it also represents a more student and employee friendly service as it provides more immediate response time. Please review the "Email Usage" in the Related Information section for more detailed information. 

Email messages have size limits. When sending and receiving email through NAU’s mailgate the limit is 20 Mb. Other email services, especially free services, typically have a smaller send/receive limit. If you need to get a large file, like a PowerPoint presentation, to someone contact the Solution Center to find an alternative other than email.
