Alumni Home Directory Access

(Redirected from Alumni e-mail accounts)

Gustavus Technology Services is offering a number of new pilot account options for recent alumni and graduates.

Historically, alumni were able to continue using their Gustavus e-mail accounts for only one year after graduation. All the new features can be accessed by visiting the GTS Tools Page. Also see System Administrators Blog.



E-mail access continued

The Classes of 2005-2013 are being offered the option of continued use of their Gustavus e-mail account. This option is available for $25. This option can be activated by visiting the GTS Tools Page. This would extend e-mail access for 2013 graduates until the summer of 2015.

I'm a 2010 graduate and I paid for continued e-mail access until September 2012, can I keep my email longer than that?

Yes, you can extend your account for another year by paying an additional $25 dollars.

E-mail forwarding

We encourage you to forward your e-mail. When you turn E-mail forwarding on, this allows for your account to continue to receive emails even after the 1 year period of your account activity. It might be the answer if you do not want to keep your Gustavus e-mail account, but do want to receive any e-mails that are sent to it. E-mail forwarding will forward the e-mails to another e-mail address of your choosing. This option can be activated or adjusted in your account settings. There is no charge for e-mail forwarding and will last as long as you wish.

Zip file of Home Directory

Many people want to keep copies of their home directory, but forget to do it before their accounts are deactivated. The Classes of 2005-2014 have the option of downloading a copy of their home directory in zip format. There is no charge for this option. This option does not become available until after your e-mail account is closed/alumnified. This option is available on the GTS Tools Page. You will still be able to log into this web page with your Gustavus e-mail username and your old e-mail password.

How can I get this .zip file if I do not have high speed internet? Can you send me a DVD of this file?

Yes, we can send you a DVD with the contents of your Home Directory with proper identification and mailing address. Please contact the Technology Helpline.
