    ISU webmail

    Does anyone know how long you can keep/use your ISU webmail after you graduate?

    Re: ISU webmail

    I want to say it is six months, but don't hold me to that. I'm still in school and I think that came up somehow in a drunken conversation with my old roommate, so I could be a bit off with my information

    Re: ISU webmail

    From what I remember, you get a 1 semester grace period. Then the following semester they'll close your account whenever they get around to it

    Re: ISU webmail

    the six month thing sounds right. I just know I kept checking after I graduated and it was there, then I forgot about it for awhile and looked and I couldn't sign in. The two things I thought it might be are...
    1. Six months and you are done with it.
    2. A month or so without checking and you are done with it.

    Re: ISU webmail

    Why would anyone want to keep using it after they graduate? It's an abysmal system that works poorly. I hope to high heaven they decide to farm it out to Google to run.

    On that note, has anyone here configured Webmail to not only forward all email to Gmail, but also configured Gmail so that it "sends" through Webmail? (ie. I want someone to email me at my @iastate.edu, have it automatically sent to my @gmail.com, read it, write a reply in Gmail, hit send, and have the recipient see that it's from @iastate.edu.)


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I used to work for the department that runs WebMail, and I think you can pay $25 or something to get an alumni account. Can also setup a forward to a gmail account or something.

    Yea its a option setting in gmail all you have to do is verify that its your account. not hard at all takes like 5 mins.

    Re: ISU webmail

    I think you have access to webmail through the end of the next semester and then I think maybe it forwards for another semester after that (if you choose to). Setting it up to automatically forward to gmail was the best thing I ever did.

    Re: ISU webmail

    FAQ: Iím currently a student. What will happen to my email account when I leave Iowa State? : IT

    When a student leaves Iowa State (graduation or withdrawal), the email account remains active for a time before being suspended and finally expired (deleted).

    A student's account is suspended in the semester that is one year after the last semester they were enrolled in classes. For example, if a student last took classes in the spring of 2006, their account will be suspended during the spring semester of 2007. If the last semester the student was enrolled was in the summer, their account will be suspended the following spring semester.


    More information there on what you can/can't do with a suspended account. The suspension lasts a semester before the account is deleted.
