Certified email (PEC)

The University of Milan has set up an institutional certified email (PEC) account: unimi@postecert.it.

Messages sent and received through a certified email account have the same legal value as a registered letter with return receipt, but only if both the sender and the recipient use a certified email account (art. 48 of the Code of Digital Administration and Decree of the President of the Republic 68/2005).

The certified email address must be used only to send the University:

  • formal notifications and requests,
  • applications for competitions,
  • statements or other documents of legal interest.

Correct use of Certified Email

The University accepts text documents as PDF or PDF/A files. Users must therefore transform documents from the original format into.pdf files before attaching them to the certified email (PEC) message.

To submit multiple applications for competitions or invoices, a certified email message must be sent for each application or invoice.

For example, to apply for three different competitions, the candidate must submit each application in a separate certified email message. If a company wishes to send five invoices, it must do so in five separate certified email messages.
