Email & Calendars

Live Mail (Students Only)

Students use Live Mail to manage their Longwood email. Live Mail is a full-service email system from Microsoft. The student email address format is the first and last name (separated by a dot) @live.longwood.edu, e.g., john.doe@live.longwood.edu. In the event of duplicates, numbers are assigned at the end of the name, e.g., john.doe2@live.longwood.edu.


Outlook (Faculty/Staff Only)

Below are help topics for setting-up and using Outlook:




Email Quota

The amount of email and attachments that you have stored on the email server are subject to a quota amount. Students have 10 GB of quota while faculty/staff have 500 MB of quota. Messages (to include messages that you have sent) and attachments contribute to your quota size. The maximum size for a single email message (for both sending and receiving) is 20 MB.

Check Your Quota

To check your quota status in Outlook Web Access (OWA), simply point to your name displayed at the top of the folder list.
