Gmail as primary email address
If you are a student and you start working at Utrecht University in addition to your studies (employee appointment), you will receive a new email address. It ends with @uu.nl (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and it is your so-called Solismail.
All emails sent to you (both to your @students.uu.nl and your @uu.nl email address) are delivered to your Solismail from the moment you commence employment. No new emails will come in at your UU-Gmail*.
Some student-employees want to keep using their UU-Gmail for the handling of their email. If you prefer this, follow this guide to set that up yourself. This configures all your email to be delivered at your UU-Gmail.
* Old emails will remain in your UU-Gmail. Nothing is ever thrown away.
Go to https://solismail.uu.nl/ and log in with your employee email address (e.g. email@example.com) and (Solis) password.
Click on Options in the top right corner, and then choose ‘Create an Inbox Rule…’.
Click on ‘New’.
Choose the following options in the window (as depicted):
- in the top field ‘[Apply to all messages]’
- then in the bottom field ‘Redirect the message to…’
A new window opens automatically.
Now fill in your UU-Gmail email address here, but instead of ‘@students.uu.nl’ at the end, you now fill in ‘@galias.students.uu.nl’.
Example: if your UU-Gmail address is ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, you now fill in ‘email@example.com’ here.
Then click on ‘OK’.
Click on ‘Save’ to confirm your settings.
Click on ‘Yes’ to confirm the new settings.
Click on ‘Yes’ if you get this notification.
Your email will now be delivered to your UU-Gmail.
Note: all emails sent to your @uu.nl email address will also be delivered to your Solis mail. If you were to log in to solismail.uu.nl again, you would see all your emails there too.
