Where to send e-mail requests

Email help requests are processed automatically so that users will receive an immediate acknowledgement from the help system that their ticket request has been received.

The ticketing system is used by a number of different groups and departments. If you have an issue specific to one of the areas below, you may receive quicker service by sending a message to the appropriate address (queue). If you mistakenly send to the wrong queue, it is not necessary to resend your request; we will make sure it is directed to the correct area.

Before submitting a request, please review the guidelines for request submission. In addition to using email, you can also submit a request for help using this web form.
