Email & Communications


The supported email platform for staff and students at UCD is Gmail, as part of the Google Workspace suite. 

Along with your secure UCD email account in Gmail, we provide mail merge and delegated email (by exception).

Shared Email: Collaborative Inbox

UCD IT Services also provides secure shared Collaborative Inboxes, for staff who require a shared email inbox. This uses the Google Groups interface, and lets staff manage shared inboxes without the IT security and data protection risks of sharing generic usernames or passwords for a Gmail account.

Both of these tools comply with authentication requirements for bulk email, however users should be mindful of complying with (opens in a new window)anti-spam and deliverability best practices
