Your Waiariki email uses a web-based system called Outlook Live. It's very similar to hotmail, gmail or live webmail accounts.
What is my Waiariki email address?
> It will be two or three letters plus three or more digits. The rationale is that since you can't choose what it will be, it provides you with a level of anonymity while still being somewhat meaningful to you and those who know you. E.g., Flo Jo Adelina Beethoven may become fjb123.

What is my password?
> Your default password is w.ddmmyyyy (that's a little w and a dot, and ddmmyyyy is your date of birth. E.g., w.25021992 for 25 Feb 1992. You can change this if you wish.
Can I choose my own email address?
> All eCampus email is sent to your Waiariki email address only. It will not go to gmail or other email addresses.
What if I change my name (eg through marriage)
> At present we are unable to make any changes, but will probably be able to do so sometime in the future.
