Student FAQ

I use Google Chrome as my Internet browser. When I log into my e-mail, I do not see all of my new messages and I cannot navigate through my mail the same way I do on campus. Why?
OWA works best with Internet Explorer as your web browser. It will open in other browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox), but it becomes much more difficult to navigate. It is recommended that you use Internet Explorer whenever you access OWA.
I am trying to set up email on my phone but it is asking a few questions that I do not know. What is the email provider (Internet email or custom domain), Incoming mail server, account type and the outgoing (SMTP) mail server.
There is an already a Mobile Email help page. Please follow the instructions listed there.
What is OWA?
OWA stands for Outlook Web Access which is the web application that is used to access our email system.
I can log into my email on campus or at home, but I am not able to access it at work. What is the problem?
There may be some security settings on your local network at work that are interfering with the authentication process due to proxy servers and/or security settings. You will need to visit with your IT staff at work to see if they are able to change the security settings to allow NewmanU.edu as an allowed domain. If they are not able to change the settings, you will not be able to access Newman email or Blackboard from work.
How do I create my email account when I enroll at Newman?
Your account will automatically be created as soon as the Registrar's Office processes your information. You can access your email via the Newman web site. Click on myNU from the menu and select Email. You can also access your Newman email directly from any browser by going to the site http://mail1.newmanu.edu/exchange. Enter your network username and password. If you need to, enter ACAD as the domain. Use the format list above for the user name and initial password (or your new password if you have changed it).
How can I change my email password?
  1. Log in to your account from a computer on campus, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and choose Change Password. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  2. If you want to change your email password from your home computer, login to your email and select the Options icon along the left-handside of your screen. Scroll down to find the Change Password button. After clicking the button, complete the dialog box.
  3. This will change the password for your Newman email and the academic lab computers.
When I changed my email password, the password for Jetstream or BlackBoard did not change. Why not?
The initial login information will be the same for email, BlackBoard and Jetstream. These applications are, however, are on three separate servers. This means if you change the password in one application, it does not change the password in the others. You will need to access each application separately to change each password.
What is my username and initial password for Newman email?
You should have received a letter from the Registrar’s Office containing your user name and password. If you cannot locate the letter, the username and the initial password will be in the following format.
  • If you were a Newman student prior to January 1, 2007, your username and password have not changed. If you first enrolled at Newman as a student during or after the Spring 2007 semester, your username will be your last name (no spaces, hyphens or apostrophes and all lower case) followed by your six-digit Student (Registration) ID (not your Social Security number). The user name can be no more that 14 characters. If the combination described above is more than 14 characters, your username will consist of only the first 14 characters.
  • Your password will be mmdd of your birthday followed by the last four digits of your Social Security number. (e.g. if your birthday is March 4th and your SS# is 555-55-1234, your password will be 03041234) If you did not provide the Registrar’s Office with any birthday information, mmdd will be 9999. If you do not have a SS#, use the last 4 digits of your Student (Registration) ID. The format for the initial password prior to January, 2007 was the Social Security number. If you were a student prior to this date, your letter from the Registrar’s Office may still have your SS# listed as the password. Blackboard and the academic network (email and academic computer labs), however, will not use the SS#. You will use the format listed above for your password. The only application that might use the SS# is JetStream.
