Email Quick Start
ECE accounts come with the ability to send and receive e-mail. Your e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. (If you need a departmental account, please see How To Get An Account.)
Although the department supports several methods for sending and receiving e-mail, most users will find that the recommendations below will suit their needs.
Access your mail using a web browser through https://webmail.ece.ubc.ca/.
If you receive an SMTP:535 5.7.0 Error: authentication failed: authentication failure when attempting to send messages, please reset your ECE account password at https://id.ece.ubc.ca
