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.
- 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.
