What is CyMail?

Your ISU Email address – it is a Gmail account. CyMail overview

Do you need to use your CyMail?  Definitely!

When you registered for your NetID, your CyMail account was automatically created.  Once you become a student, all communication from ISU offices will go ONLY to your CyMail.  These offices include Admissions, Accounts Receivable, Financial Aid, Graduate College, Registrar’s office, etc.  In addition, any messages sent using the email, announcement, or discussion subscription functions in Blackboard learn will go only to CyMail.

To log into CyMail, you can use any of the CyMail links from any ISU webpage.

Forwarding CyMail & Syncing to Mobile Devices

You must use CyMail in addition to your personal or work emails.  However, if you want to forward your CyMail to another email account you can follow these directions: Forwarding CyMail

Almost everyone uses mobile devices to access email: Syncing CyMail to Mobile Device

Communication from the MS Agronomy office:

  • Your personal or work email was entered into the MS Agronomy database when you applied to the program. We keep this information during the time you are a student.  This system has similar information but is separate from the student information in AccessPlus.
  • When you create your CyMail account, we add your CyMail address to the MS Agronomy database.
  • Any messages sent from the MS Agronomy office will go to all email addresses listed in the database system.  This is different than other ISU offices (as mentioned above).
  • Please decide how you will use your CyMail.  If you are OK with getting messages to CyMail and work or personal email, then expect that you will get duplicate messages.  If you only want the office to use your CyMail, please contact to ask to only have your CyMail in the MS Agronomy database.
