For those students wishing to have a UBC e-mail address, there are currently two options, both of which are forwarding systems. Please note that both options are email forwarding services only, and do not yet include any kind of mailbox or mail storage services.
- Sauder Alumni Forwarding system: The Sauder Office offers an e-mail forwarding system with a @alumni.sauder.ubc.ca address. To sign up for the Sauder alumni email forwarding account, current students should visit https://www.olcnetwork.com/login.php?community=5and follow the online instructions. Students will need their CWL to sign up.NOTE: At present, there is discussion about ending the Sauder Alumni email forwarding service and moving to a UBC Alumni email forwarding service. No decisions have been made about this yet, but it is likely a decision will be made in the new year or spring of 2012. If Sauder does decide to convert to the UBC Alumni email forwarding service, all efforts will be taken to allow current users of the Sauder Alumni email forwarding service to continue using the @alumni.sauder.ubc.ca address. We will keep you and your class up to date on this.
- UBC Forwarding system: All students and alumni are eligible to sign up for a UBC email forwarding address, firstname.lastname@example.org, which can be used even after graduation. This address can be forwarded to an email mailbox of your choice. To sign up for the UBC alumni email forwarding account, current students should visit https://id.ubc.ca/ and follow the online instructions. Students will need their CWL to sign up.
Please note for both these options: if you would like to be able to send email from your @alumni address, you will need to change the settings on your personal email account (the account you have chosen to forward your messages to) and add your @alumni account as an additional address. By doing this, when you are composing messages, you can then choose whether the message shows your existing e-mail address as your “From” address, or your new @alumni address.
