Email Addresses

When you log in to NevadaBox, the primary email address is automatically set based on your primary affiliation:

Students who work for the University will have an account created via the employee logic.

How do I change my primary email address?

For employees, your NevadaBox primary email address will always be netid@unr.edu. If you don't have access to that email, please contact IT Support to activate your Exchange account, or to have the address set to forward to a different account.

For students, it will always be your @nevada.unr.edu email address.

Email Aliases

We understand that not every employee at the University is known by their @unr.edu email address. People wishing to collaborate with you may know you at a different email account (e.g. @medicine.nevada.edu or @casat.org). When you first log into NevadaBox, our system will automatically add some email aliases to your account. However, email addresses that don't use our central email servers (such as @casat.org or @cabnr.unr.edu) will not be automatically added. Therefore, NevadaBox allows you to add "Email Aliases" that allow others to collaborate with you by entering in a different email address, but still reaching your one NevadaBox account.

We highly recommend that all employees check their listed email aliases in NevadaBox for anything that might be missing.
