All faculty, students, and staff at the University of Arizona are assigned an official UA email account (email.arizona.edu). This is the address to which official university correspondence is directed by default. Members of PTYS/LPL also receive an LPL email account (lpl.arizona.edu). Be advised that you will either have to check both accounts, or forward/merge accounts. John Pursch (email@example.com) can assist you in setting up your email account and providing instruction regarding access.
To get help in an emergency, please call or visit the LPL Central Computing Systems Staff at:
Joe Gotobed Cell (520) 631-2138 Room SS-440
John Pursch Cell (520) 631-2200 Room SS-201
If it's not an emergency, please send email to the Systems Help Email Hot Line sys .

After you have obtained an LPL user account from LPL Systems, you may use LPL email in one of the following ways:
- Set up and use an LPL email client on your desktop/laptop, as follows:
< >Windows and Mac users can download and install Thunderbird, unless they prefer Outlook or Mac Mail.
Sun and Linux users should find that Thunderbird is already installed on their system.
LCS Unix Workstations, MACs, and Windows PCs can be found in rooms 331 and 429a. The Unix Workstations are Sun machines running Solaris with common administration of usernames & passwords.
To set up a web page you must have a collection of HTML files that are the content of your pages. To create these, you'll need to know how to write HTML. It's quite easy to learn HTML. Take a look at the pages for the HTML Class that we gave a while ago for some places to start.
So if you have the HTML and other files for your web page, how do you get it up on the LPL web pages?
