Don’t Like Your Email Address? Create a Fullname Alias

You may also have a full name alias, often in the form firstname.lastname@law.upenn.edu. Emails sent to your fullname alias will be delivered to the same place as your primary address. To read the guidelines and select/change your full name alias, go to PLEAS. Please note that all aliases are subject to approval, which takes up to three business days.

Automatic Online Archiving

Large email accounts cause Outlook to slow down, take longer to search, and crash more often. Online archiving will automatically move emails older than two years into an online archive.

The archive folders appear in a section named Archive located below your normal folders and are searchable just like regular emails. The archive is available whenever you are connected to the Internet through Outlook for Windows and Outlook Web App
