Departmental Email / Resource Accounts
Accounts Management suggests creating departmental email accounts for things like athletic recruitment, prospective students, conferences, grants, or any long term projects. You may also use your current general department account (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org).
It’s more efficient to have a departmental account that several people can check (or one person checking the account to forward emails to the appropriate person) than having project-related emails come to a personal email account. Individuals may move to take up other responsibilities, leave the university, or retire. If the departmental account approach is taken, ownership can be transferred to another individual and the email stream is not lost; all email and email archives would remain intact.
Departmental E-mail/Resource Account Form Use this form to request a new departmental resource or email account or to change ownership of an existing departmental resource or email account. If you need the password changed to an existing account, please submit a MyTech Help Ticket or contact the Service Desk at 478-2287 OR email@example.com .
The requestor should receive notification by campus email, within 3-5 business days, when the account and password have been set up.
