Accessing Your Faculty or Staff EmailYour CSUSM username is used as part of your email address (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org). We have two main types of email for faculty and staff: Outlook and WebMail. The first thing you need to do is determine whether you are an Outlook or WebMail user from your Support Staff Member.
Outlook – If you are an Outlook email user, please contact the Faculty and Staff Help Desk to schedule a time to setup your Outlook email account on your primary computer. If you are not at your primary computer, or if you are off campus, please use the Web version of Outlook called Outlook Web Version (https://copilot.csusm.edu). The Outlook Web Version allows you to view your e-mail via a web browser (i.e., Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.). After you enter https://copilot.csusm.edu into a web browser, you will get a login box. Please enter “csusm\username” (where username is your CSUSM username, and without the quotes) in the Username box and your CSUSM password in the Password box.
WebMail - Most Adjunct Faculty members use WebMail to read or send email. WebMail is located at http://webmail.csusm.edu/. Type in you CSUSM username and password into the Log In box provided.

Out of Office (Outlook Users Only)
Use the Out of Office feature in Outlook when you are going to be out of the office for days at a time. If you help setting up your Out of Office, please call the Faculty Staff Helpdesk at x4790.
CSU San Marcos uses a service called Frontbridge to handle spam filtering for faculty and staff email. This service is hosted off-site and filters both incoming and outgoing mail. If you believe that a message has been sent to you but you haven't received it, you can check the spam filter to see whether the message has been blocked.
To do that, visit http://admin.messaging.microsoft.com, and register your account there. Frontbridge will send you an email to confirm that you own your account, and you'll then be able to log in and check your filtered messages. If you see any messages that should have been delivered, you can simply release them from the web interface.
