Function Address

1. Important Information

1.1. What is a Function Address?

A function address saves incoming emails in a common IMAP-folder, that all participants of a project have access to. Additional sub-folders can be created, which all participants have access to. When a participant deletes an email or moves it into another folder, it affects all participants.

If further participants are added during a project, they receive access to all folders of the function address, including emails that were received before they joined the function address.

1.2. How can I apply for a Function Address?

An employee that wants to be added to a functino address simply has to write an email to with the following information:

  • Project Email Address
  • Math Email Address of the employee

1.3. We do not have an email address for the project. How can we apply for one?

In the same way as described in 1.2. Please make sure, that the chair abreviation is included in the address and stands at the front of it (i.e.

1.4. For which email accounts can I apply for access to a function address?

Only for mathematics accounts. For informatics accounts we provide the alternative of shared folders.

More on that here.

1.5. Can I create further sub-folders?

Yes, they appear below the main folder like Inboxes etc. do.

1.6. Can I delete sub-folders?

Yes, it is possible to delete sub-folders.

1.7. Can I create an out-of-office reply for the function address?

You can select the project e-mail address in the drop-down menu in the SSP portal and create an out-of-office notice there. Further information and instructions can be found here.
