Please note that you cannot log in to online university services with your e-mail address. Use your username instead.
Addresses in the format firstname.lastname@example.org are called e-mail names. It is used to redirect mail to different e-mail systems.
The e-mail name consists of the user’s first and last name, but if there are several people with the same name at the university, the addresses must be distinguished from each other by adding a middle initial or other letters (e.g. email@example.com).
If you have access to multiple e-mail systems (such as the University of Helsinki’s Office 365 and Unix e-mail systems), you can choose to which system e-mail sent to your e-mail name address will be directed from Office 365. For all new users, the e-mail name directs to the Office 365 system. Please note that it is best to set your e-mail name as your return address in your mail client.
