About HeelMail

HeelMail is the student e-mail system at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It is powered by Microsoft’s Live@edu platform. Advantages of using HeelMail include collaboration tools, a calendar and integration with the ITS-managed Exchange e-mail system for faculty and staff.

After a lengthy evaluation process, the UNC-Chapel Hill Executive Branch of Student Government chose Microsoft Live@edu based on its customizable options and its ability to integrate with the ITS-managed Exchange service for faculty and staff.

Students can opt-in to the service beginning in April. Additional information on how to opt-in will be available then.

Student e-mail users of the centrally ITS-managed IMAP system (webmail.unc.edu, imap.unc.edu) should make the switch as soon as possible, no later than Friday, September 16. A mandatory transition begins on Sunday, September 18.
