Email and calendars

UNify is our UoN staff email and calendar service.Unify web link image

UNify provides a feature-rich, collaborative and unified environment for staff communication using the Microsoft Office 365 for Education service.

Your UNify account is automatically created when you start at UoN.

Using UNify

You can access UNify by opening Microsoft Outlook, which is installed on your UoN computer, or by using the Outlook Web App (OWA), or the in-built email application from any computer, tablet or smart phone connected to the Internet.

Can I recover an item I have deleted from my UNify account?

This depends on how long ago the item was deleted. Deleted items automatically 'disappear' from your Deleted Items folder after 30 days. Items that are filtered to the Junk Email folder also 'disappear' after 30 days.

However, they are still available as recoverable items for a further 14 days. So, you have a total of 44 days to recover items you have deleted, but recoverable items can only be accessed via the Outlook Web App (OWA). After this time has elapsed, items cannot be recovered.

  1. Log in to your Outlook account (see here for instructions PDF, 151KB).
  2. Right click Deleted Items in the navigation pane.
  3. Select recover deleted items…
  4. Scroll through to find the item you wish to recover, right click and select recover.
    The item selected will be restored to the original folder. (ie. Mail items go to the Inbox, Calendar items to the Calendar folder, Contacts to Contacts and Tasks to Tasks).
  5. Click OK.

You can search for a deleted item by entering key word/s into the search panel at the top of the window.

Warning: If you select the purge option, the items selected will be permanently deleted and unrecoverable.
