*This step applies only to "Current" Student, Staff, and Faculty members who are on campus attending classes or working in some capacity. This does not apply to Applicants or "Non-Credit" students.

*Sending from multiple addresses is not supported.  Replies from your mailbox will show your primary email address as the sender.  

For example, George Burdell has gburdell3@gatech.edu as his primary email account. He creates a new alias george.burdell@gatech.edu. All email sent to gburdell3@gatech.edu and george.burdell@gatech.edu goes to the same mailbox.  When he replies to any email, the reply comes from, gburdell3@gatech.edu, his primary email alias.  If George decides he wants mail to come from his george.burdell@gatech.edu alias, he can change his primary email address in Passport.
