E-Mail for Life is an address at the @alum.rpi.edu domain that lasts a lifetime. No more worrying about sending friends and colleagues a new address each time you change Internet Service Providers – give them one address that follows you wherever you go! Plus, you show your Rensselaer pride each time you send or receive e-mail. Select one of two levels of service: a free forwarding address, or enhanced, Web-based service for a nominal fee.
Free Forwarding: This service forwards e-mail sent to your @alum.rpi.edu address to another address of your choosing for free. The @alum.rpi.edu address stays with you no matter how many times you change ISPs. E-mail forwarding does not provide you with a mailbox or access to the Internet. E-mail forwarding does not store mail; it simply forwards it. It does allow you to adjust SPAM filters and deal with any unwanted e-mail.
Enhanced Services: If you like to read your mail from a Web-enabled computer with Internet access; or if you would like to set up your E-Mail for Life account to be read via any POP3/IMAP/SMTP or WAP e-mail service, Rensselaer offers this service through Mail2World, Inc. at a nominal fee starting at $14.95 per year for 1 GB of storage. Additional services are available, including SMS service, video e-mail and additional storage space (at additional cost).
