If you have setup a new email address or are having problems with sending or receiving email, follow these two steps to test your email account.

1. Send yourself an email

A simple test, but one which can quickly rule-out problems. If you can send and receive email normally your email is working correctly.

2. Email an Echo Mailer Service

Send an email to echo@tu-berlin.de – A free service provided by Technical University Berlin. When your email reaches echo@tu-berline.de, their mail server will automatically send you a copy of the email confirming it’s working. TU Berlin is an external service so it can take a few minutes for you to receive the reply.
