Your OBA Email and Our Service Provider

The OBA email service is provided by the Alumni Relations Office, Saïd Business School through the third party Email Service Provider Rackspace Hosting.

Many of the document guides provided on this page are created by Rackspace and should be followed 'as is' except where your login information differs as mentioned in the respective OBA Webmail, Email Client and Mobile Devices sections below.

Registering for OBA Email

In order to request an OBA email mailbox you must submit your details on the Register for OBA Webmail.

We aim to process OBA Email Requests within a 3-6 working day period, if you have any difficulties with the registration process or have been waiting longer than the allotted time, please contact alumni@sbs.ox.ac.uk to follow up with us on your request.

On receipt of your OBA email request we will create a single OBA email mailbox with 10GB capacity and two OBA email addresses in the format: username@oba.co.uk and username@oxfordbusinessalumni.org. Your OBA email mailbox will recieve emails from both of these addresses. You will find details on configuring which of these two addresses emails are sent from within the setup sections linked to below.
