Personal names (or aliases) provide UConn's students, faculty and staff an opportunity to have a more “personalized” and easier to read e-mail address in addition to the standardized name originally assigned to them. They also make it convenient for people outside the University to “guess” a person’s address.
The personal name points to your Registered Address which is the email address of your mail server account. This is where your email is delivered.
End users cannot change their Registered Address. These are assigned by UITS. If you need to change this for some reason, you will need to contact the HelpCenter
You may choose to add two Personal Names. Typically these Personal Names are of the form email@example.com,
or firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
However, the domain must be @uconn.edu.
For instance: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please Note:
- If a personal name has already been assigned to another it will not be available until 6 months after that person leaves the University. Personal Names can not be reserved.
Faculty and Staff are able to manage their UConn email addresses and related information by accessing Personal Name Account Administration using their NetID and password.http://uitsaccounts.uconn.edu/forms/stupalias.html
Departments submit E-mail Alias Requests form: http://uitsaccounts.uconn.edu/forms/dalias.htm
- Please Note:
- E-mail aliases are NOT case sensitive. They can be entered in lowercase, uppercase or mixed case.
New Personal Names are subject to review by UITS. If they are deemed inappropriate the name will be removed and you will be notified by email.
