Setting Up Your UC Davis E-mail Account
To setup a UC Davis e-mail account you must be either a current UC Davis Medical Student or recently accepted student to the School of Medicine for the next year's entering class. If you were recently accepted and wish to setup your e-mail please note that the UC Davis Information Technology Department (The Internet Account People) usually don't update their database until June.
1) Logon to http://computingaccounts.ucdavis.edu to establish your account.
2) Click the "Get your UC Davis Computing Account" bubble and click the "Begin" button.
3) Fillout the requested information (Under Student ID# enter your social security number without the dashes).
computingaccounts.ucdavis.edu can also be accessed via a telnet session. If you choose this option, login as "services". Once you have established your account you can access your e-mail through the web at http://geckomail.ucdavis.edu.
If you wish to access your UC Davis e-mail through a POP e-mail client (Eudora, MS Outlook Express, Netscape Messenger, etc.) you will need to change your settings to reflect your UC Davis mail pop server. When setting up your e-mail account, "computingaccounts" tells you this informaion, however if you have forgotten, you can use the UC Davis Mail ID Detective.
