Using Email on RCI


RCI is no longer the central email service, having been replaced by Rutgers Connect. RCI email service is expected to be decommissioned in 2017. Retirees with RCI accounts should create and migrate to ScarletMail accounts.

RCI users can get email through a variety of means. There is a Web Based Interface, or a variety of desktop or mobile device programs can be configured to access RCI accounts.

Users can also SSH to RCI and use Pine, as well as forward their email to a different account. There are also vacation options for your mail when you are away.

(Note: when RCI email service has been decommissioned, mail forwarding and vacation messages will no longer work.)
