The university's Office 365 e-mail service contains two separate systems: local e-mail and cloud e-mail. As a default, everyone at the university uses the cloud e-mail. Some duties may prevent the use of cloud e-mail. In such special cases, the user's e-mails are stored on the local server.

Additional instructions for local mail users
The Helpdesk instructions have been prepared for users of cloud e-mail. Most instructions related to the operation, however, apply to both systems. Nevertheless, there are some differences in the settings of e-mail applications and mobile devices.
The University of Helsinki is migrating to the Microsoft Office 365 mail and calendar system. The system also contains other applications supporting co-operation. In the first phase, only e-mail and the calendar are implemented.
In practice, this means that e-mails to Firstname.Lastname@helsinki.fi are directed to the Office 365 system. For reading e-mails, the Outlook application or the browser application Outlook Web App is recommended.
