Email for Staff

Resilient email for all school staff and governors

StaffMail provides school staff and governors with a fully-featured, hosted Microsoft Exchange-based email service accessible via Outlook Web Access and the Outlook client. For added convenience, StaffMail can also be used on mobile devices.

Email addresses can be personalised and put into the school’s preferred format through the creation of aliases. Staff can then have an email address, or several, utilising the school’s domain.

StaffMail offers a range of functions such as personal and school-shared calendars as well as personal and shared address books. It also allows shared mailboxes to be created for multiple user access.

The service is hosted and managed by TRUSTnet but configured by schools via a dedicated web interface, where aliases and shared mailboxes can be created quickly and easily.


Email for Pupils

Mail for students is an email service available to all pupils via Microsoft Office 365. The service provides a more pupil-focused, secure Microsoft Office 365 environment, authenticated via the same user credentials as all other TRUSTnet services.

Included in the service is access to the sophisticated technology of Microsoft OneDrive for Business, for both staff and pupils. This offers cloud-based storage and the use of Microsoft’s web applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote) so that users can read and create a range of documents without the need for expensive software, both at school and at home.
