Access Webmail

What is Webmail?

Webmail, also known as Outlook on the web or Outlook Web App, lets you sign in to your University of Essex email account from almost any device that can connect to the internet, including laptop and desktop computers, smartphones, and tablets. It's easy to use and you don't have to set anything up.

How to access Webmail
 Supported web browsers
Webmail is supported by most browsers, but for the best experience we recommend using Internet Explorer.
  1. Go to and sign in with your Essex ID and password.
  2. Your Mail should appear as soon as you're logged in, but if it doesn't, click the tiles icon (top left) and then click Mail.
