Your MIT email address is email@example.com - where 'username' is your MIT Athena username (also known as your 'Kerberos ID').
MIT's centralized mail service keeps one's mail on MIT servers, allowing one to access the mail from a variety of email clients and from any computer with internet access.
When using a public cluster computer, you must access your mail using 'OWA' (http://owa.mit.edu) -- MIT's web-based email client. Do not use any other mail client in public clusters.
One can select from a number of different supported mail clients (Apple Mail, etc) on one's own computer. IT provides extensive web pages at http://ist.mit.edu/services/email that explain the many email options (and complications).
