After changing your IU email address, update IU List mailing lists that you subscribe to or sponsor

Indiana University will be transitioning to a single email domain,, between now and the end of 2025. For more about the transition, see One Mail. For details about the impact to IU List specifically, see Changes to IU List from the One Mail initiative. For general actions you may need to take, see Prepare for One Mail at IU.

If you change your primary Indiana University email address (for example, from to, and you subscribe to or own any IU List mailing lists, you should update your email address in IU List. Although incoming mail sent to your old email address will still be delivered, if you do not update your email address in IU List:

  • You won't be able to email any discussion lists that restrict posts to list subscribers.
  • You'll be unable to use the IU List web interface to make changes for any lists you own or subscribe to under your old email address. These lists will not appear on the "My lists" page.

If you change your IU username, in addition to the reasons above for updating your address in IU List, email sent to your old address will forward for only 30 days.

Before you begin

Before you change your primary email address, you should verify your IU List password by logging into the service. If you do not have a separate IU List login, create one. See Set, change, or reset your IU List password.

After you have changed your email address (see Avoid service interruptions when changing the primary email address for a personal or group computing account at IU and Change your primary email address), you can update your address with IU List.

If you have forgotten or haven't set your IU List password on the new IU List infrastructure, but you already have changed to your new email address, and your old email account doesn't redirect to the new one, you will not be able to update your email address automatically through IU List. For help, email the UITS Support Center.
