Information Services > Services > Email > Employee Email > Accounts > Long Email Addresses
DePaul provides an option for faculty and staff to select a different email address for use instead of the default email@example.com
address. This is an optional selection, and employees are not required
to select a new long email address. If selected, the new address will
serve as the default email address. From that point, all outgoing emails
will be sent from that address. Emails that are sent to the old (firstname.lastname@example.org) address will continue to be delivered.
Employees may choose only one long email address, so
users are strongly encouraged to ensure that the option they choose is
the one they would like to use going forward. To select a new primary
email address, employees must log into Campus Connect, and then navigate
to Self Service > Campus Personal Information > Set New Primary Email Address.
Once there, the user may only select from the parts of their name that
are provided on the screen. A user may, if they wish, select a
'Preferred Name' in the system, which can be used as a source when
constructing their new long email address. The rules of how these
name-parts can be combined are available in the 'Instructions' section provided on the page.
