E-Mail: Redirecting Mail
Redirecting your @purdue.edu Address
You typically have four options for your email:
1. Office365 (students and retirees only)
2. the on-premise Exchange Server (Faculty and Staff only; 5GB default allocation, additional available for $5/GB/year: see http://eng.purdue.edu/jump/9ccded)
3. Forwarding to an external email provider (eg Gmail) (available to all) and
4. ECN email (by special request)
If you want to control where you receive your email, you need to edit your directory information. Read the directions on the Purdue Directory website for Setting the "Service" Field.
The first two options are self-explanatory, but please do contact us if you have any questions.
For Option 3, forwarding your email to an off-campus entity, there are a couple of considerations... the most important of which is whether or not you deal with any email that is restricted from being on off-campus servers due to any contracts you may be working on. If you do decide to use this option, this is a two-step process. The first step is to set your off-campus email (like Gmail) to be able to send email as your @purdue.edu address. This is typically controlled in your Send As settings, directions vary, but are similar across email providers.
The second step is to set your forwarding to your external email address. Note that you will be unable to log into any Purdue webmail (because there's no email stored here to check)
For Option 4, please contact us first, explain why you would like to use ECN's Linux-based mail services, and we will assist with running the appropriate scripts to set your account up to be able to deal with email that is checked from multiple sources (eg: Webmail, desktop client and smartphone). Internal Note: To setup someone to use ECN mail, follow the steps in the article at https://engineering.purdue.edu/ECN/Support/KB/Docs/MovetoECNEmail (Restricted to ECN Staff)
NOTE: All @ecn.purdue.edu and @purdue.edu email get delivered to the same location.
