Departmental / Registered Student Organization (RSO) Accounts
Departments and Registered Student Organizations may request one generic email account for conducting organizational business. Departmental accounts requiring student access and all RSO accounts will be created on the student server and are only accessible via webmail. Departmental accounts not requiring student access will be created on the faculty/staff server. To request an account, please use the following form: https://ls2.cmich.edu/cgi-bin/lobform.pl
CMU E-mail servers are backed up for disaster recovery purposes only. Since the mail stores are backed up en masse in a binary fashion, it is not possible to restore an individual customers' email or mailbox.
