Continue using your IU-branded email address

Many people at IU have a username@iu.edu email address. Additionally, you may have created an email address based on your campus affiliation (such as username@iupui.edu, @iuk.edu, etc.).

After separating from IU, you can continue using your IU-branded email addresses by creating an alumni email account through any IU Alumni Association member program (for example, the no-cost IU Proud program), and then setting up forwarding so that messages sent to your IU-branded email addresses arrive in your alumni email account inbox. To do this:

  1. Join an IU Alumni Association member program (for example, the no-cost IU Proud member program).
  2. Visit Member Services and create an alumni email account.
  3. Log into your alumni email account to confirm that it has been created.
  4. Contact the UITS Accounts Administration team from your alumni email account and request to have mail forwarded from your IU-branded email addresses to your alumni account. Make sure to include your full email address in this request (for example, username@alumni.iu.edu), as your alumni email account username may be different from your IU username.
    Important:
    Do not contact the Accounts Administration team until you've verified that you can log into your alumni email account. Doing so may cause your mail to bounce.
  5. Once your request is completed, mail sent to your IU-branded email addresses will arrive in your alumni email account inbox.

You may also transfer your files and messages to your IU Alumni Association account or another Google account. For instructions, see Import and export Google data and email.

If you do not create an alumni email account, then you will no longer receive mail sent to your IU-branded email addresses (such as username@iu.edu, username@iupui.edu, etc.). Additionally, you will not be able to forward mail from your IU-branded email addresses to a personal email account.
