Access to Volmail after you have left UT

The university administration is discontinuing the NetID@vols.utk.edu email service for alumni at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Institute of Agriculture, and the UT Space Institute.

Alumni with an active @vols.utk.edu email account can continue to use their UT email until October 31, 2023. At that time, all alumni accounts will be closed.
