Evergreen hosts student email using Microsoft Exchange, an industry-standard enterprise system. Email is the primary official medium for communication between Evergreen faculty/staff and students.

Tesctalk and Tesccrier lists

These lists are available as "opt in," meaning you must subscribe to the forum to receive messages. There are many ways that you can customize how you view the postings in these forums. It doesn't have to be just email. For help with managing your subscriptions, see Tesctalk and Tesccrier Management.

Tesccrier is provided to help keep members of the community abreast of events that happen here at Evergreen (e.g., theater events, music events, athletic events, on-campus events hosted by non-campus groups). The Tesccrier list can also be used to announce off-campus events that are directly related to Evergreen’s mission of teaching and learning.
Tesctalk is provided to facilitate discussions of interest to the campus community (e.g., current world events).


Through you can set your evergreen email account to auto-forward to an external email address (such as Hotmail, Gmail, MSN, etc.). Be aware that if you select this option, you are then responsible for making sure you are receiving email from Evergreen. Test it if you're unsure by sending a message to your Evergreen account. If you don't get it, there may be a problem with your forwarding address or provider.
