What is an "OIT Managed" email address in MyUI?


When you are using MyUI you may see one or more email addresses listed as OIT Managed Email. An "OIT Managed" email address is any personal email address ending with "uidaho.edu" that you own. This typically will be a single email address but may include both your student and employee email addresses if you have more than one account.

"OIT Managed" email addresses are automatically added when an account is created, and set as inactivate when an account is deleted.

Note: OIT Managed Email cannot be updated or changed. They are marked as "Not Updateable" in MyUI.


Preferred Email Address

The OIT Managed email type should not be confused with the single Preferred email address you will see marked as "(Preferred)" in MyUI. The Preferred email address is used for all email communication from the University and there can only be a single email address marked as Preferred.
