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.
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 and e-mail
Many people want to keep copies of their home directory and e-mail inbox, but forget to do it before their accounts are deactivated. The Classes of 2005-2012 have the option of downloading a copy of their home directory and e-mail inbox 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.
