Frequently Asked Questions regarding Email & Email Accounts.

Can I forward my email to another email account?

For security reasons, HIPAA regulations and PHI [protected patient health information], we cannot auto forward email outside of the UNC-Chapel Hill email system. The UNC-Chapel Hill email system does accept forwarding from outside email services.

How long can I keep my email?

Our current policy states that while you maintain a current affiliation with the UNC School of Medicine, you are entitled to a UNC-Chapel Hill email account. When you are no longer affiliated with UNC-Chapel Hill, your account may be inactivated, depending on your employment role.Please review UNC-Chapel Hill Onyen Policy for details.
