Permanent Email/Email Forwarding
Stay connected with a free @alumni.albany.edu email address – a service of the alumni online community. When a message is sent to your alumni email account, that message will forward to a personal email address that you specify. This means that you don’t have to check multiple email accounts to get your email. If you change personal email accounts, you can easily update your address in the online community so that email sent to your UAlbany address will automatically be forwarded to your new address.
This professional email address looks great on resumes, your curriculum vitae, business cards, and other official contact documents. It is also useful for social networking, or just to show your UAlbany pride!
