E-mail for students

Webmail (IMAP)

Convergence provides a webmail client on the server, which can be accessed via https://imap.uni-erfurt.de. This means that all functions (mail, address book, calendar, etc.) can be used on computers on which no mail program can be used (e.g. in Internet cafes, foreign computers).  

Each student receives a mail account upon enrolment. You will be able to access your mailbox directly via the web-based login. When you register for the first time, please note that you have to use your initial password and change it separately from your university account

We recommend Mozilla Thunderbird as your mail program but you can also use any other mail program, which supports the integration of IMAP accounts.

The maximum size of mails to send or receive is 20 MB.

Please use another browser (Google Chrome, Firefox or similar).
