How do I retain an IU-sponsored email account after graduation?
You can maintain an IU-sponsored email account after you graduate if you do one of the following:
Create a Umail account
Note: UITS no longer allows the creation of Imail or Cyrus (Webmail) accounts, in anticipation of the retirement of those services. See About the Imail retirement and About the Cyrus (Webmail) retirement.
With an Imail or Umail account, your return address will remain
firstname.lastname@example.org after you
graduate. Your campus address (e.g.,
email@example.com ) will
remain active only if you set your preferred address to your Imail,
Umail, or alumni email account (see below). Forwards to other
preferred addresses will result in the deactivation of your campus
address. See At IU, how do I choose my primary email address and preferred email service?
Create an IU Alumni Association account (members only)
The IU Alumni
Association (IUAA) offers a web-based email client from Microsoft
for those who are not eligible for an Imail or Umail account. Members
of the IUAA have access to a professional email address
firstname.lastname@example.org ) for
resumes, social networking, or to highlight their affiliation with
IU. See Alumni
