I wonder how.
Here's some info from http://san2.dii.utk.edu/
"What is your NetID?
When you came to UT, you were given an email address; it looks something like smithrbtennessee.edu or maybe it looks like jonesj21utk.edu. Either way, your NetID is the first part of your UT email address--in this example that would be smithrb and jonesj21.
So when you are asked to enter your NetID in the box above, we are asking you to type in the portion of your email address that comes before utk.edu or tennessee.edu.
What is your password?
You were also given a password that works with your NetID. The original one, also known as your default password, is a combination of your birth month, the last two digits of your birth year and the last four numbers of your Social Security number. If you were born in January of 1981 and your SSN is 123-00-4567, your default password is ja814567.
