More Information

Your address will look like:
your.choice@pidgeme.com

As well as being a useful continuation of your University identity and an easy way to keep in touch with your peers, the address will also come in very useful in the next phase of your life:

"A recent survey of HR managers by Yahoo! found that 51 per cent would be put off by a candidate who had a "wacky" e-mail address. Although a university e-mail account is perfectly acceptable, it may cause you problems on graduation, when the address expires."
The Independent
Your PidgeMe account will never expire.

Account Options

You have the option of various accounts to suit your needs.

You will receive 3 months' free trial at the enhanced-level service.

A Quality Service

PidgeMe differentiates itself from the many public/free email services on the web by offering a higher quality email experience, uncluttered with distracting advertising and fully supported by a properly manned helpdesk.

Being a trusted, university provided service, you can be 100% sure that your privacy will always be completely respected, resulting in a noticeable absence of spam (provided of course you keep your address private yourself). Even if the address does get on the odd marketing list, our dedicated and user-configurable spam firewall captures the majority of junk.

You will receive exceptional customer service

The subscription amount, from just £10.00 per YEAR, is perhaps the smallest of any ad-free service and you should expect to rapidly recoup this value in terms of both the stress and time saved.

Old Webmail Removal

11:50 on 09th Nov

Dear Email User, 
 
You may be aware that your Email for Life service currently has two different webmail interfaces, simply known as 'old webmail' and 'new webmail'.
 
Introduced in 2018, the newer webmail platform features better support for mobile devices and modern browser features. We pledged at the time to run the two services alongside one another for as long as possible to give existing members plenty of time to make the transition.
 
Five years later and we are now ready to permanently close Old Webmail, planned for 5th February 2024.
 
This does not affect your email account itself, only the webmail interface you use to access your account within your browser. Your emails, folders and any filters you have set up remain exactly as they are. Similarly, if you use a POP or IMAP email client to access your email, there are also no changes required.
 
If you haven't already made the switch to new webmail platform, please log in to the service before 5th February 2024 and your address book will be migrated over automatically.
 
How to access New Webmail
1. Log into your account
 
2. Go to the My Account page
 
3. Within the Email Accounts tab, you will be options for Old Webmail (which is being removed) and Webmail. Click on the Webmail button 
 
4. Next time you login you will be directed to your New Webmail inbox
