E-mail Forwarding for Life is an e-mail delivery service provided by Georgia Tech. This service allows eligible users to keep their Georgia Tech e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) after they have left Georgia Tech. You will not be provided with a Georgia Tech mailbox nor a web interface to send and recieve e-mail. Your Georgia Tech email address will simply be an email address that delivers email to a valid third party, personal, e-mail address.
Whether you are a new student to Tech (and to email) or if you are graduating and have a GT provided mailbox, you might want to setup a personal mailbox with a third party service that you can maintain for the rest of your digital lifetime.
Yes. Be sure to maintain your personal delivery mailbox. Any prolonged delivery issues will cause your EMFL to be deactivated. Login to PassPort (https://passport.gatech.edu) to start email delivery again.
