Tech Tip: UNIX e-mail for students is going away
Currently enrolled students at SJSU who have paid their fees are the only people who are eligible for a new SJSU Student E-mail account. If you are not a current student you will not be able to use the new SJSU Student E-mail system. This is true even if you are a graduate who has been using an old SJSU student UNIX account.
SJSU does not currently offer e-mail to former students, including graduates
Student UNIX accounts (student e-mail accounts that end in @email.sjsu.edu) are going away as of the last day of October. After that date you will not be able to get an e-mail sent to any account from SJSU that ends in sjsu.edu. If you have had a Student UNIX account, your account will be disabled and all mail on the server will be deleted as of the end of October. There is no ability to forward e-mail from the old Student UNIX account to any other account after the last day of October. All e-mail sent to that account will bounce as undeliverable after that date. You need to establish an e-mail account somewhere else and tell all the people who have been sending you e-mail that you have a new e-mail address.
If you have a Student UNIX account, and would like to save your e-mail from your Student UNIX account, you should use an e-mail client like Apple Mail, Outlook, Eudora or Thunderbird to download your e-mail from the UNIX server. All mail on the server will be be deleted as of the end of October. You cannot save your UNIX e-mail on a student account using just web-mail. Again, this will only allow you to save e-mail sent to a Student UNIX account before the last day of October 2008. All e-mail sent to that account will bounce as undeliverable after that date.
