About our new email address aliases

We have added a new alias to everyone's Email Address. In addition to an email address based on your Cabrillo College username, we offer an email address that is has the form:
  • Firstname.Lastname@cabrillo.edu. 
For example, Mr. John Doe who works at Cabrillo College has the email address:
  • jodoe@cabrillo.edu
and the email alias
  • john.doe@cabrillo.edu
You can use either form to refer to Cabrillo College staff and faculty email.

List of cautionary points about the new email alias

  • Your 'real' Email username is still the first two digits of your first name and the first 6 digits of your last name (e.g., josmith@cabrillo.edu).
  • You will need to use your 'real' Email username for logging into the mail server
  • Your Network Account Login Name has NOT changed, so continue to use it to login to our network.
  • You may use the new naming convention for your email address to make it easier for folks outside of Cabrillo to remember your email. Although the email  is similar to your Network Login, the two accounts are unrelated. This change is for your E-mail address only, not your Email username. Similarly,
TIP: If you decide to use the new Firstname.Lastname@cabrillo.edu email alias then change your Reply-To address in your Netscape or Mozilla preferences to reflect the change.
