Your e-mail account is defined by your IUP computing username. Your username (abcd) is also your e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
An alias can be defined as an alternative name (e.g., an alternative to your username). IUP has defined an e-mail alias for all students. These can be used as an alternate e-mail name for your IUP e-mail. In general, IUP e-mail aliases for students look like J.R.Doe@iup.edu.
Specifically, IUP student e-mail aliases will have the following characteristics:
To access your e-mail account to read e-mail, you can use your IUP computing username (abcd) or your e-mail alias (j.r.doe) when logging into imail. Students using an e-mail client (e.g., Outlook or Thunderbird) can modify the "From Address" to reflect their e-mail alias. Be careful to use the correct e-mail alias.
In addition to the above characteristics, e-mail aliases will be displayed in the “e-mail address” section of the IUP Directory. E-mail aliases will be retained based on the computer account retention policy for students.
