11. October 2022 - Service announcementOutgoing mail server mail.urz.uni-heidelberg.de: Sending mails from end devices outside of Germany only possible via VPN
For security reasons, sending emails via the university's outgoing mail server mail.urz.uni-heidelberg.de is currently only possible from end devices within Germany (in the area of the top-level domain "DE") or with a VPN connection to Germany (e.g. to the university VPN server).
- This applies to sending emails from applications such as Outlook or Thunderbird.
- Emails can still be sent without restriction via the webmail interface SOGo.
- Exchange email accounts are not affected by this measure.
We apologize for the inconvenience!
