SCS Email

SCS Computing Facilities is in the process of transitioning the current SCS email services to the CMU Computing Service's email infrastructure in a multi-phased project.
  • If you recently joined the SCS community, your SCS email is delivered to the CMU computing Services email system. If you have been here a while, inquire about your SCS email account status by contacting the SCS Help Desk (x8-4231) or sending email to <help@cs.cmu.edu>.
  • Depending on where your SCS email is being delivered you can access your SCS email using a conventional email client, the SCS Webmail interface, CMU, or both.
  • If you are in the process of migrating your SCS email to the CMU Computing Services email service and would like more information about the migration process contact the SCS Help Desk (x8-4231) or sending email to <help@cs.cmu.edu> and they will notify the Email Migration Coordinator.
