1. Account properties and general comments

All accounts have properties which are viewable in ITSS facilities. Some of what you see will differ depending on the account type.

  • Official sender email address
  • Expiry date
  • Last login
  • Spam filtering
  • Display name
  • Advertised in GAL (Global Address List)
  • Quota
  • Forwarding (if set on server)
  • Delegation ( if set on server)

Additional features are viewable to the owner from https://register.it.ox.ac.uk/self/nexus such as folder size, last time devices were 'active synced' to the mailbox. All mailbox accounts on Nexus are associated with one email address and that address must be unique. If that address is not normally routed by the Oxmails to that account, an automatic forward will be set up after each mailer table update, to route mail to where the Oxmails would send it. It has the form @xx.forward.nexus.ox.ac.uk . This is usually seen for those departments for whom IT Services do not route mail eg Physics, Computer Science, Maths, Earth Sciences.
