Email Migration Complete
The student email migration is complete. All students now have @fsu.edu email accounts.
On May 4, all student email accounts upgraded to @fsu.edu email addresses.
This means one email system for all of FSU, which will make it easier for you to collaborate with the entire FSU family.
May 4, 2022
What is changing?
Your FSU email address will end with @fsu.edu instead of @my.fsu.edu

Why are all my emails not showing up in my new email account?

Will my email change if I graduated in Spring 2022?
Yes. If you are an FSU alumnus or alumna who graduated in Spring 2022, your email address will upgrade to an @fsu.edu address, and you will retain access to your account for one year after graduation.
How do I change the email address I send from in Outlook?
If you are a student employee, you likely have an official FSUID@fsu.edu email address and an alias email that uses your first initial and last name. If you would like to select which address your emails come from, follow these instructions to send a message from an alias email. This feature is available in the online and desktop versions of Outlook, but is not available in the Outlook mobile app.
What is the benefit for me?
Students will gain access to the same Office 365 tools as faculty and staff, making it easier to collaborate across FSU. Students also will get a 100 GB mailbox, which is double the size of current student email accounts. Finally, all emails will end with @fsu.edu instead of @my.fsu.edu, giving it a more professional look.
Will any data be deleted from my @my.fsu.edu account?
No. Your mail, calendar and contact data will be copied to your new @fsu.edu email account. OneDrive data will also be copied to your new account. Then, in December 2022 your old @my.fsu.edu account will be closed completely.
What support is FSU providing to current students during the upgrade?
To ease this transition to your new account, FSU will transfer all student email, calendar and contact data associated with your @my.fsu.edu account to your new @fsu.edu account. FSU will also transfer all OneDrive data to your new account.
Where can I find my student email if I am a student employee?
Your student email will appear in your employee email account in a new folder named myFSU_Email. All calendar items and contacts from your student account will merge with your employee calendar and contacts.
What if I am a student employee and do not want my student and employee emails to mix up?
If you currently have two FSU email accounts, your student and employee accounts will be combined into one mailbox and calendar. Email rules are a great way to organize your inbox. You can set up rules to automatically move emails from a certain sender or with certain words to another folder. We suggest setting up a “Work” or “School” folder within your email account and creating rules to route emails accordingly. Email Rules Support Article

Update your contact info on your resume and portfolio as soon as possible after May 4.

What email should I use after May 4?
After May 4, you should begin to use your new @fsu.edu account. Bookmark the new sign in page: outlook.com/fsu.edu. You will receive a welcome message in your new FSUID@fsu.edu account after the upgrade is complete. At that time, you will no longer be able to access your old @my.fsu.edu account.

Why is my email no longer protected by FERPA?
On February 8 the FSU Board of Trustees approved modifying the university’s FERPA directory information to include student email addresses, enabling student contact information to be listed in the FSU directory. You still have the option to hide your account if you choose.
