  • Mail

    When you open the Mail App, your Inbox is the first thing you see. Your Inbox is where messages sent to you arrive, and where you’ll probably spend the most time reading and responding to messages. Check your Iona email at least once a day. Iona's email system is the official form of electronic communication between faculty, students, and staff. College offices and faculty communicate with students through the Iona assigned email address.
