Norse Mail users may request an email alias in addition to their normal @luther.edu address. An alias allows emails to be sent to a different address that is then forwarded to your normal @luther.edu mailbox. This is helpful in cases of simplifying an address (i.e. [email protected] vs [email protected]) or for short term purposes (i.e. [email protected]).
Two Important Notes Regarding Aliases
Aliases cannot match the current Luther address scheme (first 4 letters of the last name, first 2 letters of the first name followed by two digits), a department on campus (i.e. – President, ITS, choir, etc), be offensive or inappropriate, or other criteria as defined by ITS.
Organizations or Departments should contact the Technology Help Desk to arrange for a proper email address or mailing list rather than using an Alias.
When Composing a new message, the From field will now include a drop down menu to allow you to select your email alias. In the Settings – Accounts, you can set your alias to be your default account.
