Now faculty and staff can have an email Alias for their email account.
Every employee at USI has been assigned an email address using a unique username. Usernames are system generated and are typically formatted first initial middle initial last name (example JTSmith). Some people end up with numbers attached (example KABlack13). Some people end up with a truncated username (example CSAnderso).
An e-mail alias is a convenient e-mail address based on your name (for example, John.Smith@usi.edu). The alias is not a new mailbox. It is just an address that is easier to read, write and remember than your official username address. Using an email alias can present a more professional appearance.
