Hawkeye Email

Hawkeye uses a web-based Microsoft Outlook program, allowing you to access your email from anywhere on and off campus.

All students have a Hawkeye email account. This account is created upon acceptance into your program. Please allow one working day after your acceptance for your account to be created.

Hawkeye sends important college information including your grades, attendance, financial aid, and graduation information by email only.

Your Hawkeye Email Account

Your email address is username@hawkeyecollege.edu.
Example: robert.doe@hawkeyecollege.edu.

What is my username and password?

Need your password reset?

Spam Filter

Hawkeye does not agree to deliver all emails addressed to its users.

All inbound emails for staff and student email accounts are subject to filtering. The goal of filtering is to prevent the distribution of spam, including pornographic and non-pornographic mass mailings.

Filtering is performed with a system automatically set up with rules to detect spam. It is possible emails sent to a Hawkeye email address maybe filtered, even if they aren't considered spam, if they come from a mail server to known to be used by spammers.

Forwarding Your Hawkeye Email to a Personal Email Account

If you forward your email, Hawkeye will not be able to track these emails and will not be responsible once the email has been sent beyond our system.

  1. Open Internet Explorer.

  2. Log-in to your Hawkeye email.

  3. Click on the "Rules" button located in the left column near the bottom. The Rules button is only available if you are using Internet Explorer as your browser.

  4. Click on the "New" button located in the top toolbar.

     

  5. Create a Forwarding Rule

    1. Type a name for your rule in the "Rule Name" box.

    2. Click on the "Forward it to" radio button in the "Then" section.

    3. Type in the email address you want your Hawkeye email messages forwarded to.

    4. We recommend that you uncheck the "Keep a copy in my Inbox" check box. If this box is checked the messages will be forwarded to the address you type in and all messages will also remain in your inbox. This will require you to still maintain and clean up your Hawkeye Email to eliminate the possibility of your mailbox getting full.

    5. Click on the "Save and Close" button.

     

  6. Click on the "OK" button on the pop-up box to accept the rule addition and make it active.

  7. Click the "Save and Close" button on the top tool bar.

     

  8. Once this rule is in place, only new messages will be forwarded. Any existing messages will not automatically be forwarded.
