Owners of an "@lmu.de" address (employees) do not have a "real" mailbox, but only a forwarding service.

The "@lmu.de" address should - if possible - be forwarded to the faculty address.

It is therefore not possible to log in to the mailbox with an "@lmu.de" address.

LMU portal

Webmail of the LRZ: Roundcube

In both cases there are links that explain how the mailbox works in more detail.

Are you having problems receiving emails to your @campus.lmu.de address?

If you have not already done so, please first switch off forwarding by removing the existing email entry. To do this, log in to the LMU portal and go to User account -> Email settings -> Change email forwarding.

The mail system in the LMU portal is sometimes unable to load emails or attachments due to the current security configuration. In this case, try uploading and downloading via the LRZ webmail service.

The user name is your LRZ ID (you can find it in the LMU portal in the user account overview). The password is the same as in the LMU portal.

User name: LRZ ID
Password: Password of the LMU user ID (former campus ID)
