This program also offers students with additional features such as MSN Messenger, Photo Gallery, Spaces, One Care, Calendar and other Live @edu services.

3. Who is eligible for UUM Live?
UUM Live is available only to students. Staff are not eligible for UUM Live.
4. Is UUM Live required?
Yes. UUM Live is required for UUM students, and a UUM Live account will be created for you automatically.
5. What happens when I graduate?
One advantage of UUM Live is that it is free for life when you graduate from UUM. You can continue to use UUM Live services after you graduate if you wish. Once you are no longer a full-time student at UUM, the standard Microsoft Live Mail advertising will appear in the interfaces for your email, calendar, etc. but your account will otherwise be unchanged. If you don't log in for 365 days, any mail messages stored on the UUM Live server will be deleted, but the account itself will remain. If you log in after a 365-day lapse, you can resume using email services but all your old messages will be gone.
6. Do I need to use a Windows PC or Microsoft Internet Explorer?
No. All the Web-based services included in the UUM Live suite can be accessed from Windows, Mac, or Linux using Internet Explorer or Firefox. Safari and other browsers are not supported at this time.
Live Messenger is available for both Windows and Mac OS 9 and OS X; the Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta application is only available on Windows.
7. Will someone from Microsoft be reading my email?
No, Microsoft will not read your email. See Microsoft’s statements on this at http://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx and http://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/fullnotice.aspx . While an automated process indexes your email content for fast search retrieval, no humans at Microsoft will be looking at your email.
8. Does UUM Live include SPAM filtering?
Yes. When you use UUM Live, incoming and outgoing mail will be filtered.
9. How much email storage space do I get?
UUM Live currently provides 5 gigabytes of storage for email and calendar content. This should be enough for all of the important email you receive while a student at the University.
