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 (email@example.com) 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.
Retirees that are still using their GT Mailbox for GT Business may keep their Mailbox once they retire. They will need to annually attest that they are still using this resource for GT Business to maintain this service.
Otherwise, Retiress are eligible and should transition their Email Address to the Email Forwarding for Life service. You can do this through PassPort (https://passport.gatech.edu). Please make a backup of your GT Mailbox if you wish to keep a copy for personal reasons before transitioning to Email Forwarding for Life.
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.
