UNH Launches E-Mail Forwarding

By Meg Torbert

DURHAM, N.H. -- E-mail Forwarding, a new e-mail service, is now offered by the University of New Hampshire Alumni Association, Paul Caswell, president of the Alumni Association board of directors, has announced.

E-mail Forwarding is a free service which forwards e-mail messages to UNH alumni, new graduates and students wherever they are -- in New Hampshire alone, there are 47,000 UNH graduates, more than 10,000 of whom live in the Seacoast area.

Subscribers to the service are provided a permanent UNH e-mail address, such as , which they can give to family, friends and classmates. All e-mail messages sent to the UNH address will be forwarded to the destination e-mail address provided.

"For new graduates, and for alumni who change their e-mail address often, this new system will be very valuable," says Caswell. While e-mail has become a very popular means of communication, Caswell notes that one of the frustrations is having to notify dozens of friends and relatives every time people change their e-mail address. "Having a lifelong e-mail address means alumni, new graduates and UNH students can give out an e-mail address that will never change," he says. "We are delighted to offer alumni another service through the Alumni Online Services system." To sign up for E-mail Forwarding, alumni and students may visit the alumni homepage at . For more information, see . There are no fees for using UNH alumni online services, but alumni are asked to submit an e-mail address for the e-mail Directory. Users of the E-mail Forwarding system are also asked to update their destination e-mail address on the UNH alumni web site when they acquire a new e-mail address through an Internet service provider or their place of employment. Online Services also provides an alumni E-mail Directory, for looking up e-mail addresses of classmates and friends; a Business Network, for listing and finding alumni businesses; e-mail discussion groups; UNH classified ads; and a weekly e-mail newsletter, The UNH Connection. For more information about alumni services, including chapter activities, on-campus events and volunteer opportunities, call the Alumni Center at (603) 862-2040 or visit the Web site at http://www.unh.edu/alumni/.
