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.

Changes to our Email for Life Security Regarding Email Clients

17:46 on 10th May

Due to recent updates to the security settings of our Email for Life servers, some users may have noticed that their emails via an email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) were not accessible. In many cases, this is due to the age of the email client being used as some older email clients do not support a level of security that is now required.
 
To allow affected users to be able to access their emails, we will shortly be reverting some of the recent security changes to allow older email clients to continuing accessing emails. Please note this change will only be in place for the next three months. We would urge all of our Email for Life customers to update your operating systems and email clients to the latest versions to guarantee future compatibility.
 
As a guide, the following email client versions and later should be considered the minimum requirements:
 
Outlook 2003 on Windows 8.1
Outlook 2016 on OSX 10.11
MacMail on OSX 10.12
Mail on iOS 11
Mail on Android 5
 
For the technical among you, as long as your email client supports TLS version 1.2 you should see no disruption to your service via an email client.
 
Thank you.

Changes to our Email for Life Spam Settings

14:39 on 19th Oct

From Monday 1st November, we will be making some changes to our spam settings within our Email for Life service. The default spam policies will be updated so that they no longer automatically discard certain messages that previously would have been. These messages will now appear in your Junk folder.
 
This change will affect all users using the light, normal, high or strict filtering policy. It will not apply if your webmail filtering policy is already set to custom.
