Email and Network Account Termination

Please be advised that email and network accounts will be terminated on Monday, August 4 (the first Monday after the summer bar exam). After this date, you will not be able to recover any emails that are currently in your inbox.

If you would like to save your emails, you may download a .pst file of your inbox, following the instructions here. Please note that you must be on campus in order to download your .pst file, as you need access to the Chicago-Kent Server for the download. Moreover, please be sure to have a flash drive or recordable CD on which to save your emails, as the files are generally too large to send by email. It is your responsibility to make a backup of your emails to a .pst file. If you have questions, please contact the Center for Law and Computers at or (312) 906-5300, but note that they cannot complete this process for you.
