The official email system for UCF students is Knight's E-Mail. As of Fall 2009, all students will be required to use Knight's E-Mail. External email addresses at places such as Yahoo, Google, AOL and others will not be used when university emails are sent. Students will need Knight's E-Mail to read all emails having to do with advising, class registration, financial aid, or Webcourses. All communication from faculty members and their classes also come through Knight's E-Mail.
Knight's E-Mail will be available to faculty by the time Fall 2009 semester begins. Faculty are still encouraged to use GroupWise (which is created from within the faculty member's department). Students sign up for Knight's E-Mail individually, and are allowed to keep their accounts after they leave UCF.
Faculty are encouraged to share the following video with students, perhaps by showing it during class time, to introduce Knight's E-Mail to students:

Knight's E-Mail includes a full e-mail system, including sub-folders and mail forwarding to Knight's E-Mail (but not from it), as well as an ability to check email from a mobile phone. There are numerous other features besides email that make Knight's E-Mail an advantageous tool for student organization. These features also enhance learning and studying opportunities:
