Mailing for Students
For students at BOKU, the IT department (ZID) provides a webmail system called Horde. This allows you to send and receive your emails in every location (PC rooms, internet cafés, ...). The only thing you need is your BOKU account and a browser with internet connection.
Please note that all relevant emails regarding your official and legal study are sent to your ...@students.boku.ac.at - account.
If you should wish to forward your emails to your usual email address, you can easily set it up at your BOKUonline Business Card:
- E-Mail Administration in BOKUonline (information only in German)
If you wish to use an email program (such as Mozilla Thunderbird) instead of the browser, you can find all the relevant information here:
