With UP mail, users will have an unlimited file storage space for free. Users can upload/download files up to 5TB, which already tilts the scale heavily in favor of @up mail, compared to the measly 30GB storage of a regular, non-UP mail Google account.

Professionalism in the Campus

University employees are not the only ones expected to observe professionalism, as the [email protected] email address can be used for both administrative and academic communications. Even before students can enter the workforce after graduation, the use of an official University email promotes courtesy and integrity.
The UP Mail may be used for submitting research papers to international conferences, applying for scholarships here and abroad, and for submitting applications for research grants. Some institutions even require for an “.edu” e-mail for applications.

Institutional Identity

UP follows the lead of some of the world’s top-caliber universities such as Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in implementing the use of UP’s own email address. Harvard and MIT have thisEmail for Life program, wherein students can still continue using their university email even after graduation. It’s convenient for graduates, since their email program has the double purpose of storing all email accounts in one database and, at the same time, maintaining their Harvard and MIT credentials for other purposes.
By using the UP email, one supports the One UP. One University –the mantra of the current administration’s strategic plan. Consistently using UP email as official channel hence means collective recognition of being one university.

Protection in court cases
