sign up for the service?
I've changed my internet service provider and now have a new e-mail address that I need to update so my McMaster forwarding e'mail address will continue to work. What do I do?
Login in to McMaster @lumni Community (M@C) with your username and password. If you've forgotten your password or need to update it, click here for instructions. Once into M@C, select My Profile and in the e'mail address text box, write over your current McMaster forwarding address with your new permanent e'mail address. Once entered, click submit. Do not worry that your McMaster address is now been overwritten. It will automatically return once your e'mail address has been updated on the server.
Due to the nature of the updating process established by our partner in this service, the McMaster Computing and Information Services (CIS) Department, it may take 2 to 3 days to have your record modified.
I just graduated, want to sign up for e-mail forwarding and select an alias and want to request the same address I had as a student. Is this possible?
Congratulations on completing your university studies! Due to the timing of the transfer of the data from the Registrar's Office to Office of Alumni Advancement, you cannot sign up for either M@C or our e'mail forwarding service until after your convocation ceremony and the transfer of information is complete.
CIS allows students who have just graduated a grace period when they can still use their MUSS address. For more information, please visit the CIS website at http://www.mcmaster.ca/cis/index.html

I'm a graduate student but can't seem to sign up for the E-mail Forwarding and Alias Services? What can I do?
As of February 2003, the Computer and Information Services at McMaster has informed us that graduate students within two years of studying at McMaster cannot sign up for these services due to current University policies. We are looking into problem and appreciate your patience.
