The Department of Statistical Science provides email service for all user accounts. Your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (of course ``user'' must be replaced by your user ID). Additionally, you should be able to receive email as:
We have a number of more user-friendly email aliases for convenience.
All students, faculty, staff, and long-term visitors will also receive a Duke email account, that will be email@example.com where netid must be replaced with your NetID. You should also be able to receive email as firstname.lastname@example.org. New students will receive their NetID during the summer and can access their Duke email using Duke Webmail by logging in with their netid (username) and password. All incoming students will receive their DSS account information from Larry Hall when they arrive on campus before classes start.
Options for Accessing Your Departmental Email
The most commonly used options are:
- Mozilla Thunderbird, an IMAP-based web mail program for Linux, windows or Mac OSX. See the Thunderbird automatic configuration for setting up Thunderbird in DSS. If automatic configuration does not work, you may configure Thunderbird (or other IMAP clients) using these IMAP settings.
- DSS Webmail, logging in with your NetID and departmental password. Departmental mail is no longer available via Duke Webmail.
- Forwarding mail to another email program
For most members of the department we recommend using Thunderbird. Other IMAP based mail clients may be used to access your email from tablets or smartphones. Please see the IMAP/SMTP settings for configuration details.
