=FH-internal Microsoft Exchange Account=
Every student and employee at the FH JOANNEUM receives their own e-mail address upon joining. Until 2013, the address was usually structured like this:
* Students: '''firstname.lastname.course_abbreviation@fh-joanneum.at''' (Example: ''john.doe.ind08@fh-joanneum.at'')
* Employees/teachers: '''firstname.lastname@fh-joanneum.at'''
Student mailboxes have the following limits:
* '''90 MB''' (warning)
* '''95 MB''' (cannot send mails)
* '''100 MB''' (mailbox locked)
When your mailbox is full (locked), you cannot receive new mails until you free up some space. When deleting old mails, make sure to check the Recycle Bin folder.

* Port: '''25''' (default)
