E-mail

/ee'mayl/ (also written `e-mail') 1. n. Electronic mail automatically passed through computer networks and/or via modems over common-carrier lines. Contrast {snail-mail}, {paper-net}, {voice-net}. See {network address}. 2. vt. To send electronic mail.

UCC provides its members with their own email account - username@ucc.gu.uwa.edu.au, or username@ucc.asn.au. There are a multitude of ways that email accounts can be accessed:

You can also send email using your UCC account from outside the UCC network by using secure.ucc.asn.au as your SMTP host, again enabling SSL, and making sure you turn on SMTP authentication with your username and password.

If you want spam caught by UWA's spam filter to be moved to a separate ucc-spam mailbox, create an empty file ~/.filter-my-spam in your homedir. UCC also has it's own spam filtering, which catches more spam, but has slightly more false positives - you can use that by creating ~/.filter-my-spam-more. Remember that no spam filtering is 100% accurate - some real mail probably will get caught. To avoid spam filling up disks, ucc-spam mailboxes may be automatically cleared out after a month - check it every so often.

Address Books and Calendars

You can use UCC's carddav (address book) and caldav (calendar) server for your own personal address book across phones or computers. Just point your software at secure.ucc.asn.au (SSL enabled) with your UCC username/password. These are part of the SOGo setup, there's a web interface too. It should work out of the box with Mac OS X or iPhones. You can use CardDAV-Sync and CalDAV-Sync on Android as an alternative to Google's services.
