Mail Calendar and Other Services

After completing email migration in August 2016, CS now uses University mail systems known as Rutgers Connect and ScarletMail as described below.

Using Personalized Email Address

Your mail address will initially be NETID@cs.rutgers.edu (faculty/staff) or NETID@scarletmail.rutgers.edu (students). Many people prefer to use an email address such as NETID@rutgers.edu, or even john.smith@rutgers.edu. Mail sent to NETID@rutgers.edu will be forwarded to you at cs.rutgers.edu or scarletmail.rutgers.edu, as applicable. You can add a "personalized" address such as john.smith@rutgers.edu, or change the address to which it is forwarded, using the Email portion of https://netid.rutgers.edu.
