What is Alumni Email?

After you graduate, your @flagler.edu email account will be disabled and all data removed from our system on a schedule:

  • Fall graduates' accounts are removed on February 1.
  • Spring graduates' accounts are removed on June 1.
  • Summer graduates' accounts are removed on August 1.

Before you graduate, you will be given a new email address in the format [first initial][last name][3 digits]@alumni.flagler.edu (jsmith123@alumni.flagler.edu, for example). You must forward any emails you wish to save from your @flagler.edu email account before they are deleted.

To log in to your new alumni email account, visit welcome.alumni.flagler.edu. This service is provided by Google, and also includes free calendar, chat, online document storage and editing, and more.

Preparing for the Transition

Not ready to have your Flagler College network and email account deleted because of job prospects or grad school applications? Just fill out our Graduate Account Extension Request form and we'll make sure your account is handled separately.

You can use Flagler Connect to download all of your files at once to your home computer without coming to campus. Mac network files are not available yet, but will be in late summer 2013.

Click here for instructions for configuring automatic replies to make your contacts aware of your new contact information.

Make sure to notify friends and family with whom you correspond about this important change. To facilitate notifications, you may want to set up an auto-response message (from your @flagler.edu email account) that includes your new contact information. This way, when someone contacts you, they will be notified automatically of how they should reach you after you graduate.

  1. Log into your current email account at https://exchange.flagler.edu.
  2. Click “Options” in the upper-right of the screen.
  3. Click “See all options…”
  4. In the upper-right, click “Tell people you’re on vacation.”
  5. Enter the message you would like people to receive when they email you. For instance, "Hello! I have recently graduated from Flagler College. I have received your email, but from now on, my new email address is jsmith123@alumni.flagler.edu. Please update your address book to ensure that I continue to receive your emails. After graduation, I will no longer have access to my current jsmith123@flagler.edu email account. Thank you!"
  6. Set the “Start time” close to your graduation date and an “End time” far into the future (say, 2014) to ensure that you don’t miss any messages.
  7. Select the checkbox for “Send automatic reply messages to senders outside my organization” and “Send replies to all external senders.”
  8. Click "Save" in the bottom-right.
  9. Have someone send you an email as a test.

If you use Outlook and are interested, you can try Google’s Mail Migration Tool to help automate your mail transfer from your @flagler.edu account to your new @alumni.flagler.edu account, but we are unable to provide support for this product. Otherwise you will simply need to manually forward any email messages that you wish to keep from your @flagler.edu account to your new @alumni.flagler.edu account.
