Student Email Information

Your student email address will never expire, and will be available for use after graduation throughout your life

If you are accessing your account for the first time, you will be promted to select a time zone. We reccommend that you choose the time zone where you are primarily attending school. For most students this will be Rexburg, Idaho (Mountain Time GMT -7:00)

If you prefer to use other e-mail applications such as Outlook, Windows Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, Entourage, or Mac Mail rather than the university's e-mail portal, then refer to our our Student Email Setup page to find out how to synchronize your preferred application with your BYU-Idaho e-mail account.

You may also access your e-mail account on your smart phone
