Provost Email, powered by Microsoft Exchange & Outlook, allows users within Provost IT-supported departments to access email and calendars. It is currently being decommissioned.
Provost Email is used by staff, faculty and some student workers within various Provost IT-supported departments. It provides email services, calendaring functionality and an address book to eligible users. Most email addresses ending in @provost.usc.edu, @research.usc.edu, @stevens.usc.edu, @emeriti.usc.edu and @universityclub.usc.edu are powered by Provost Email.
Beginning in early 2017, Provost mailboxes will be subject to a new email deletion policy. Messages stored in these mailboxes that are older than 16 months old will be automatically deleted unless they are moved to a custom folder. A new policy which prevents automatically forwarding incoming messages to a non-USC account will also be placed into effect at this time. For more information on this policy, click here.
