Electronic Communcations at Belmont
There are several ways to communicate electronically on campus including email and voicemail. ITS provides a number of facilities on and off campus to support important communications including email and listservs that are available to faculty, staff and students. Our goal is to tailor communications tools so that the right user will get the right message. Some web based tools that are available include:
1. Email is how Belmont communicates
-everyone on campus has an email address. Email addresses are set up when a person becomes a member of the Belmont community. Users can forward email to off-campus addresses or set up a vacation message. Email can be accessed through a web browser or through an email client such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Netscape communicator. Student email is supported through Google and Faculty/staff email is hosted with Microsoft.
