Why can't I use my Yahoo email address on eCampus?

eCampus does not allow students to use '@yahoo' email addresses because of a change in Yahoo's emailing policies made in April 2014. Since Yahoo's change of policy all emails from eCampus are blocked from being delivered.

Emails may be triggered from eCampus by these actions:

  • when messages are sent
  • when forum postings are created
  • when you submit an assignment
  • when you submit a quiz

Because we know students with Yahoo addresses will not have emails delivered to them, we have changed our system to convert Yahoo email addresses into the South Metropolitan TAFE provided Office 365 Email address. These are <your Student ID>@polytechnicwest.wa.edu.au. Please read this section of Student Help to learn how to use your new email system. It does include added benefits such as 25GB of cloud storage.

NOTE: you can set up the @polytechnicwest email address to forward all received emails to your Yahoo account, so you can still use Yahoo to read emails from eCampus. To find out how, visit Use Rules to Automatically Forward Messages.
