How to Find or Change Your E-mail Alias

  • Your e-mail alias can be obtained using MyIUP or by searching for your name using the IUP People Search web page. On the IUP People Search webpage, your e-mail alias will be displayed as your e-mail address.

    An employee can change his e-mail alias by logging into MyIUP and following the steps below. Please keep in mind that employees may only change their e-mail alias one time. After the permitted change, only legal name changes can alter an employee’s e-mail alias. Students who had a legal name change are also permitted to change their e-mail alias.

    If you have had a legal name change and your e-mail alias needs to be changed:

    • Students: Please contact the Registrar’s Office to process the name change. When making the request, also ask them to update your e-mail alias.
    • Employees: Please contact the Office of Human Resources to process the name change. When it has been processed and your new name appears in the online directory, please contact the IT Support Center to update your e-mail alias.

    For any e-mail alias change, you will need to manually update your "from:" address in imail AND any e-mail client software that you use.
