BlueM@il: Creating, Changing, or Deleting an Employee BlueM@il Account

Information Services maintains the email system for the university. BlueM@il accounts are created and provided for all DePaul employees.

Account Creation

Once an individual's hiring process has been completed and confirmed by Human Resources or the Career Center, an account is automatically set up for the employee, and an email confirmation with instructions will be sent to the employee (via the email address that was provided during the hiring process) and their supervisor. For individuals that are not employees but maintain a long-term relationship with DePaul (sometimes referred to as a 'Friend of DePaul'), and need a BlueM@il account, a DePaul employee must request this account and setup by filling out the request form here.

Account Updates

If a current DePaul employee needs to make any changes to the information that shows up in the Outlook Address book (e.g. title changes, change in departments or office location, new phone number, etc.), review these instructions to make updates.

To change your name in the Outlook address book in the case of marriage, divorce, etc., you must legally change your name through DePaul Human Resources first. Once Human Resources changes your name in DePaul's PeopleSoft system, send an email request to and they will work with you on making this change. Note that a name change will generate a new Campus Connect ID and Outlook e-mail ID.

Password Changes

Your BlueM@il ( password is the same as your BlueKey password. Learn more about changing or resetting your password if necessary, or contact the Help Desk.

Account Deletion

Information Services deletes accounts for those individuals who are no longer working at DePaul University. This is handled via the HR termination workflow. If the individual in question was not officially employed (certain special cases, such as visiting scholars, contractors, interns, etc.), it is the responsibility of the former employee's manager or sponsor to inform Information Services when an employee email account can be deleted.

To delete an account, complete the Delete Exchange Account form.
