Campus Computing News

This is a reprint of an article that appeared in the August 2000 issue of Benchmarks Online. Please note that it is very important for all UNT students to have an EagleMail account. If you are a faculty member, please urge all your students to activate their EagleMail accounts A.S.A.P. If you are a student and you don't have an EagleMail account, please get one A.S.A.P. If you have another account that you prefer to use to read your mail, no problem, just forward your EagleMail there. -- Ed.

By Sandy Burke, Manager of Computing Center Help Desk Support Services

Did You Get Your EagleMail?

Students are required by University policy to activate and read their UNT E-mail, called EagleMail. Faculty and staff can also follow the procedure below to activate a UNT Internet Services account if they require network dial-up or other services provided with that account.

If you already have an EagleMail (or UNT Internet) account, you do not have to do this again. This ID/password is needed to access the UNT student E-mail services, as well as the UNT Internet Services.

To Activate EagleMail or UNT Internet Services:

  • Go to
  • Complete the requested information (UNT ID#, Birthdate, and Last Name)
  • When asked, type in your own unique password.
  • Be sure to record your E-mail address somewhere so you can remember it, as the “secure” form will not print from your browser.
  • The Internet account will be activated at 8:30pm the same day you apply.

To use EagleMail:

  • After your account is activated, you can access your UNT EagleMail.
  • Go to
  • Put in your UNT Internet account ID (usually 2 to 3 initials and 4 numbers).
  • Put in your self-assigned password.

To change your password/forward your mail:

  • Go to the Account Management Page:
  • Log in with your EagleMail (or UNT Internet) Account ID and password.
  • From the menu select “Change Your Password”. You can also select "Email Services" and choose to forward your mail to another Internet Service Provider or GroupWise account from this menu.
