As we continue to evolve and simplify the HSU email system, on February 11, 2013 we will be discontinuing the use of email addresses that include @axe.humboldt.edu in favor of the more straightforward <yourname>@humboldt.edu. This change also means that the addresses that show up in Gmail will be much more streamlined, and should work correctly again if you use Outlook.
To ensure you don’t lose any emails as a result of this change, please take the following steps as appropriate for your situation:
- If you notice that any of your incoming emails are addressed to you at an @axe.humboldt.edu email address, please let the sender know that they need to update their address book. You can search for these by entering '@axe.humboldt.edu' into the search box.
- If you subscribe to any off-campus mailing lists, newsletters, etc, with an @axe.humboldt.edu email address, you’ll need to update your subscription information or resubscribe using your @humboldt.edu address. Some subscriber mailings you receive will include your email address in the body of the mail; you can locate these and others that are addressed to you as an individual rather than through a group email address using the search described above. If you’ve been subscribed to any lists for ten years or more, you may have subscribed to those lists using an @axe.humboldt.edu address.
- When you send emails, take care not to select any @axe.humboldt.edu addresses from the suggested list of contacts displayed in Gmail.
You don’t need to make any changes to on-campus mailing lists (HSU Google Groups); ITS will take care of updating those email addresses for you.
While you’re making these changes for @axe.humboldt.edu email addresses, you might want to take care of @redwood.humboldt.edu email addresses at the same time, as these will be going away soon, too.
