106: I’m a Mines student. Should I use my @mines.edu or my @mymail.mines.edu email address?
Students (and, in fact, Mines employees as well) should advertise their username in this format: firstname.lastname@example.org
While student MyMail addresses in the form email@example.com will also work, MyMail accounts will be removed after the student graduates. If students advertise their streamlined @mines.edu address, they may be able to keep their Mines email address indefinitely in some cases. (Currently, Mines graduate students who have published papers with their @mines.edu email address may avail themselves of a new “Email for Life” service. This service may be extended to other students in the future. But, again, this long-lasting personal email address would be in the form firstname.lastname@example.org — not email@example.com.)
