NOTE: As of March 10, 2020, CatMail adds an External Sender Notification on emails coming from outside the University. This will help you identify scam emails that pretend to come from someone at the University. Learn more about external emails.
A CatMail account is created automatically when any new University of Arizona student selects a NetID. The new email address will have the format your NetID @email.arizona.edu, and it is the official means of communication between students and the university.
The student email service is provided by Google G Suite for Education, which also provides access to Google's full suite of applications from any computer or mobile device.
Google Apps for Education offers numerous benefits:
- An educational account with no ads and full privacy protection
- Unlimited storage space
- Access via web, preferred POP or IMAP email software, or mobile device
- Google's excellent security and uptime record
CatMail includes all other Google G Suite for Education services. Faculty and staff can opt in to a CatMail account for all other services except for email.
Once a student NetID is created, a CatMail account is available automatically. Access your account by going to catmail.arizona.edu.
Education vs. Personal: If you have a personal Gmail account as well as a CatMail account, remember to check which account you are logged into. See How-To's for assistance.
All UA students are provisioned with a CatMail account, which they can continue to use as alumni. (Google reserves the right to transition alumni accounts to consumer Gmail accounts.)
