What means "system account" and how to apply for it?

A system account enables the use of it services for non personal computer systems.

  • A system account is not included in the global address book.
  • Mails to a system account are forwarded to the person who is responsible for it. Please note, the responsible person is the person, who made the application for the system account. 
  • To apply for a system account, please fill in this online-form in TUMonline.

A system account is not a mailbox. For this reason a system account can't be used for the receive of personal mails. For this purpose, a "Shared Mailbox" is available.
