Email aliases are email addresses which can be used at the University to receive email. (NOTE - You can send from your official University email address only, see Your University Email Address)
You may request the addition, or removal, of email aliases to your email account using this Self-Service Page. All requests for email aliases are reviewed by a member of the IT Service Desk staff. The business rules used to approve or deny all requests for email aliases are listed below.
The following business rules will be used to determine if a request for an email alias will be approved.
- Requests for aliases which contain names of offices and/or departments, or abbreviations of same, will not be granted except with the permission of the head of that office/department.
- Requests for aliases which contain titles, or abbreviations of titles (president, secretary, prez, MathClubPrez, HistorySecretary, DeanOfStudents, etc.) will not be granted except with the permission of the senior officer of the organization being referenced in the alias. If the requested alias is a bare title or abbreviation or a title with no particular organization being referenced (indicating that the title is a University-wide title) the alias will have to be approved by the University council.
- Requested aliases will not be granted if the alias does not have any relation to the requesting user’s name (i.e. a nickname) or to some official affiliation the user has with the University.
- Since any alias assigned to an official University email account will be a public identifier, and will be used for official communication with University affiliates, any request for an alias which is deemed to be vulgar, profane, or otherwise inappropriate for public use will be denied.
