How Do I Get Started:

Check email on your work computer

Your work computer should come with Microsoft Outlook installed and your account set up. If this is not the case, please contact the Help Desk to get it set up.

Check email on any computer using a web browser
Outlook Web App provides access to your email from any computer connected to the web, even a public computer at an airport terminal or hotel. All you need is your existing Upstate email address and password.
To sign in to Outlook Web App, follow these steps.

1. Go to email.uscupstate.edu in any browser.

2. Type your Upstate user name. This is the first part of your email address before the @.

3. Type your password, and then click Log On.

Check email on the go

You can connect your Upstate email account to virtually any internet-capable mobile device using Microsoft Exchange. You will be able to access most features of your Outlook account. Only your most recent emails will be synced, but you will not lose any emails. They just will not be available on your phone after a certain number of days. See below for instructions on how to set up email on your mobile device.
