Email in the Physics department

Introduction

All email for the Physics department is provided by Nexus365, the University’s instance of the cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 service, providing email, calendaring and access to a number of other Office 365 applications. Nexus365 is a central service provided to Oxford University by IT Services Nexus365

IMPORTANT NOTICE
From January 7th 2021, IT Services are introducing a requirement to use a new multi-factor authentication system (MFA) to access services associated with your account. If you access your email using client software other than Microsoft Outlook, your email client may need re-configuring.

Accessing email

Nexus365 is cloud-based, so email can be accessed via a web browser as well as using a dedicated email client application.

To ensure full compatibility with Nexus365, we recommend using Microsoft Outlook where available. Microsoft Outlook is pre-installed on all Windows and Mac systems provided by the physics department and is also available from the app stores on Android and iOS devices.

Other email clients that support the Exchange Web Services (EWS), IMAP4 or ActiveSync protocols can also be used but may not support all features provided by the Nexus365 system such as delegated access to shared mailboxes.
