E-mail and calender


When affiliated with the department, you can have one or two mails:

  • A university mail
  • A regional mail

University mail

An e-mail address from the university will typically be an address.

Add your university mail to Outlook

You can add your university mail to Outlook on your personal computer. This will give you extra functions inside the mail system.

Formal signature of the department

When you write e-mails from your work mail (university mail and regional mail) you should use the formal signature of the department. The signature for the university mail is both in Danish and English - both can be added to use the proper one when needed. The signature for the regional mail is more simple, and the guide should be followed when added. Please be aware that the signature for the university mail should not be used for the regional mail.

To add the university mail signature to Outlook, follow the guidance (in Danish) described in the signature document (can be downloaded to the right). You can only access the signature when you have access to the department's Google Drive.

Regional mail

An e-mail address from the region will be an address.

You can only sign in outside the regional network if you set it up in BSK, otherwise you have to log in to Citrix through a regional PC. See how to set up your regional mail for access outside the regional network:
