Oxford Nexus
Oxford Nexus is a central Oxford service used for email, calendaring, contacts and much more. Nexus is the replacement for the previous email system known as Herald, and also offers new features, such as calendars, to-do lists and access to a University-wide address list. You can access Nexus using a web browser, via a program installed on your computer and even on your mobile phone. To access all the new features we recommend that you use a program installed on your computer (aka a "client") such as Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2003 for Windows users and Entourage 2008 if you are a Mac user. However, if you already use an email client on your computer such as Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook Express, MacMail, or Eudora you can still access your emails in the same way that you did on Herald. And remember, using a client to access Nexus on your own computer does not exclude you from also accessing Nexus using a web bowser via the Outlook Web Access (OWA) login page, for example when you want to check your email or to use your calendar when you are away from your own computer.
