Set your NetID password security questions:
During your NetID activation, you were given the option to set your security questions.  These questions are the way to reset your NetID password if you forget it.  It is imperative that you use questions with answers you can easily remember, or it will be difficult to reset your password due to proof of identity policies.  If you did not set these questions, go to and click "Set Your Security Questions". 

Accessing your Cornell Email:

Please note: it generally takes 1 - 4 hours for your account to become fully functional. After this you should be able to begin using your Cornell email. Cornell offers two email accounts (MS Office 365 and CMail (Google for education)). It is strongly recommended that you use Cornell's Cmail account. This is the account that you will keep and take with you when you graduate. If you choose to use Office 365, you will need to migrate from that account at graduation or risk losing any course data you may have saved during your time with us.

To start using your Cornell email, go to and log in using your full Cornell email address ( and the password you created when you activated your NetID.
