Alumni Email FAQs

Here are some helpful tips and information for migrating your alumni email account to a personal email account:

  1. Create a new email address if you have not done so already. There are many free email providers such as Gmail,  Yahoo , or ProtonMail . When choosing your new email address, use your name or something that will age well over time. If you have a common name, try using your last name first or a combination of your initials and your last or first name ( or
  2. Import your contact list to your personal email account.
  3. Let your contacts know you have a new email address. Once you have your new email up and running, it’s time to email everyone telling them about your new email address. Be sure to use the Bcc option (blind copy) in the address bar, so you don’t accidentally share other people’s email addresses with the whole group. You may also want to add a signature that calls out the fact that your email has changed.
    • For go to Settings > View all Outlook settings > Mail > Compose and reply.
    • For Gmail go to Settings > General and scroll all the way down to Signature.
  4. Update all accounts and services that use your alumni email.  You may be using your alumni email as a username for other services such as Facebook,, or a subscription service. Go through each application or service that is tied to your alumni account and change it to your personal email account. The easiest way to do this is to search through your old email for phrases like “confirm your email,” “unsubscribe,” “your new account” or “welcome to.” This should provide you with a solid list of websites you have accounts at, email newsletters you’ve subscribed to, and just about everything else.
