Migrating to HujiMail


Retiring administrators can switch from Savion to HUJImail.

General Information

Savion is a Hebrew-based email system designed for the administrative staff of the Hebrew University and tailored to its needs. In addition to email, other services are offered, such as: calendar, access to the university phone book and access to a form database and management instructions. Savion is also accessible online through a browser.

Several months after the employee's retirement, the Savion email account will be closed, so the employee is given the option to open an email in HUJImail and forward the email from Savion account.

Step 1

HUJImail account must be opened

  • To open a mailbox go to http://mail.huji.ac.il/open
  • Identify and fill out the form. When done, you will receive a confirmation with your account details.

If the personal code is unknown or cannot be identified for any other reason, contact the support center

Step 2

Sign in to the email 

Entering your new email is through the site http://mail.huji.ac.il

Step 3

Transfer mail and contacts from Savion to HUJImail

  • The transfer from Savion must be done on the university computer where Outlook is installed with your Savion account.
  • Click here for the migration Software Download and Installation Guide.
  • Follow the instructions in the manual.
  • Finally, apply an automatic forwarding from the old Savion account to the new HUJIMail account.
