Where do we sign up???
avatar Re: mylife Account

UNISA in collaboration with Microsoft has created its own student email system (myLife) in recognition of the increasing need for, and reliance on, electronic communication. This is a free service and you may keep this e-mail address for life, even after completing your studies with UNISA. You must be a registered UNISA student before you can claim your free e-mail account. In future, this will be the ONLY means of communication between UNISA and its students and will be considered an official communication standard between students and college faculty and staff. The use of the student email is a privilege, not a right, and the university maintains the right to limit access.

Claim your free e-mail by joining myUnisa.

Hey Mac....

Is it mandatory that we sign up for mylife, or is my current gmail address sufficient?
avatar Re: mylife Account

Apparently it soon wil be ....

In future all official correspondence from UNISA will be sent to this e-mail address ONLY.
If you want to have your e-mail to be sent to another e-mail address, e.g. your mobile phone, you have to set your e-mail program to automatically redirect the myLife e-mail messages to that address. Consult the help-file of your e-mail program for the necessary instructions.

Re: mylife Account

My account was created as well.
I sent my assignment 1 from here to start the official change in communication! LOL

But, I have already set up an account for mylife on my Mac Mail.
Just hate having to check all my accounts in different places!

Guess I'll have to send an email and see why my surname doesn't match their database... Thanks to all who posted...

(I have tried all possible spelling...)

I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this,
I'm trying to link my MyLife Email account to my Google Email account, please can someone tell me what the pop server is supposed to be?
I keep entering mail.mylife.unisa.ac.za, but I'm guessing this is incorrect, as it gives me the following error message:
There was a problem connecting to mail.mylife.unisa.ac.za

And the Error Details:
Server returned error: "Connection timed out: There may be a problem with the settings you added. Please contact your other email provider to verify the correct server name and port."

Thanks!

Both the pop and imap and smtp work on the same adress:
pod51002.outlook.com

Have set up my account - and it is working fine.

Hope this work!

Hi Guys,

I must say I have also tried this whole week to set up a MyLife account but im also not getting it right for some reason? I have tried all spelling, caps on and off with and without spaces, plain text the works and still nothing?
I have sent an email to MyLife support and no reply?
avatar Re: mylife Account

Julienne...

I have send an email to MyLife support and they notified me via automated response that they will be attending to my mail shortly....
Have you received anything from them???

Might there be another POP address?

Hi Steyn,

I did get a notification last week 10/8/2010 and no one got back to me yet, I did receive a reference number. Am not quite sure yet how to submit complete work. For now I have been keeping a file of screen shots for study backup. Ive phoned the two numbers that was given to me for the MyLife and i hung on yesterday for an hour and this morning again I held on for half hour....no luck....confused smiley

Hey Julienne.

I submitted assignment 1 through my g-mail account... Got an email that my assignment was received... So just use whatever email you have available to submit your first assignment... It's future communication that will use only the MyLife mailbox that's worrying me...
Re: mylife Account

Hi Steyn,

I did use my gmail to submit my first assignment. But as you mention regarding the future communication regarding MyLife account is also making me a bit stressed.....

Any progress your side regarding this?

It says I have a mylife account...but I have not yet received any mail to my Hotmail via mylife. ...so i dont know what is going on hahaha.

Julienne...

I mailed MyLife support explaining the problem with my surname not matching their database... Provided them with my student number and ask them how my surname is recorded in their database... They then send me a link to the page, "claim your MyLife email"... To me it doesn't look like they even bother reading the mails they receive... So I send a mail to El-Marie about MyLife and MyUnisa this morning... I'll let you know how she responded as soon as I receive an answer from her... I can't see how this can become the only means of communication before all problems are sorted out...
Re: mylife Account

Thanks Steyn,

I did that very same thing, emailed MyLife support twice and had the same reply which they emailed me the link to MyLife and were to register....had the exact same thing happen twice.....

I cant hold on the telephone everyday for more than half hour for MyLife inquiries .....its getting frustrating....

anyways lets hold thumbs,,,not sure who else to contact regarding the problem...
Re: mylife Account

@bellyheart

Don't know if you have come right with the pop, if not, when logged into your mylife account
select the help function. In the new winow select email setup and choose the Access Your Account Using IMAP or POP E-Mail Programs
option. This should shed some light on the subject.
