3.1. Central email account
IT Services maintains the central Nexus email system. Anyone entitled to an Oxford account (except Card Holder and Virtual Access card categories) is entitled to have a central email account on Nexus. The account name and password for Nexus are the same as those for the Oxford account. Most people will be given a Nexus account automatically, in which case the Oxford account activation letter will include your University email address and this will be tied to the Nexus account. Until the end of Michaelmas Term 2009, some users will have their central email account on the old Herald system, which is being phased out.
