Saskatchewan Polytechnic uses the Outlook email system, which may take a little time to load on your computer. Like all email systems all incoming mail appears in your Inbox. Look there to see if you have a message from your instructor. If so, please reply to let your instructor know that you can access your email and your online course.

Online instructors will not send email to external email accounts such as Hotmail or Yahoo. Saskatchewan Polytechnic's firewall may prevent your instructor from receiving mail sent from these accounts. Please communicate via the Saskatchewan Polytechnic email system. Saskatchewan Polytechnic's HelpDesk only accepts incoming email from Saskatchewan Polytechnic accounts.

Email may be unavailable on the third Saturday of each month between 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. due to scheduled server maintenance.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic recommends you use a Windows or Macintosh computer purchased in the last two years and a high-speed Internet connection.
