All GNU/Linux workstations are accessible with the credentials you chose upon registration by the Lorentz Institute IT staff.
These credentials give you access to your departmental email address

It is possible to forward all incoming mail to your departmental email address to an alternative one by editing your
~/.procmailrc. In any case, please do not use the
~/.forward to set up forwarding to external email addresses.
If you are planning to use the IL computational cluster, please read Maris Cluster.
Never disclose your IL credentials. The IT personnel will never ask for your password. Also, you are encouraged to change your password on a regular basis. You can do that by typing on any IL workstation
passwd and following the onscreen indications.
