Faculty & Staff: Employee Email
Access your email, calendar, and contacts by clicking the Employee Email link at the top of any CCAD Web page to display the Outlook Web Access login page.
Login with your assigned Username—don't include the @ccad.edu. To protect your password, email sessions are encrypted, but email itself remains an insecure messaging service. Don't put anything into an email message you would not want posted on a public bulletin board!
Employee email addresses end in @ccad.edu. Students and alumni have CCAD GoMail accounts that end in @go.ccad.edu and are provided through a separate system.
Accessing Your Account
You can access your account from on- or off-campus using a Web browser from any device that supports SSL security protocols, including many handheld phones and devices.
The college does not offer POP or IMAP connectivity for employee email accounts, and the current system does not provide email forwarding capabilities. Microsoft Outlook is provided for staff and faculty who are assigned Windows computers in campus offices; Microsoft Entourage is supported for Faculty Computing Program participants on college-owned computers. We do not support use of other third-party email applications on- or off-campus.
CCAD does not currently offer direct connections for employee email, calendar, or contact information on smartphones except for a small number of 'test' users where the college pays for the service. We are working on a project to deliver connectivity for devices that have Exchange ActiveSync to connect to our email system; this project is expected to extend over the next several months.
When the project is completed and the service is rolled out to employees, only the following types of phones and devices will work with our system (in alphabetical order):
- Apple iOS devices, including iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad -- Apple leads the industry in smartphones, portable web-enabled devices, and tablet computing. [ http://www.apple.com/ ]
- HP WebOS Devices -- The WebOS family is expanding to include several phones and a tablet from HP [ http://www.palm.com/us/ ]
- Windows Phones -- The older Windows Mobile operating system is dated and clunky compared to more modern alternatives, so if you are considering any of these, look at the newer Windows Phone 7 devices instead. [http://www.windowsphone.com ]
Devices that do not support Exchange ActiveSync protocols cannot work directly with our system and will not be able to connect. This currently includes Blackberry and most Android devices. (Google does not provide ActiveSync support in the Android operating system. Some phone manufacturers are delivering third-party support for some of the ActiveSync protocols, however.)
We will update this information as the project moves forward and as new compatible devices are identified.
