Email Account Activation /Termination email accounts are created for all PSR students in a graduate degree or certificate program (auditors, Special Students, and continuing education students do not receive email accounts). This account is mandatory and the only email address PSR will use for communication with students. All email accounts are issued as <first initial last name>, unless the username is already in use by another student. In that case a number will be appended to the username (example: <first initial last name>

Your email account will continue to stay active as long as you use it, even after leaving PSR. You must log into your account at least once per year to keep the account valid. If after one year you do not log into your account the account will be deleted from the database and all email and related information stored in the account will be lost forever. A warning message will be sent to the email address 30 days prior to the account being deleted, to alert the user of our intent.

Email Forwarding
Some users choose to forward all emails from their account to another address. This is a good option for those that do not want to have to check the account regularly, though it is still the responsibility of the user to log into their account at least once per year to keep it active. It is also recommended that students whitelist their address on their accounts to prevent important email from being marked as spam. How this is configured varies for every email service, and is beyond the scope of this document. In general you want to permanently mark as valid and not spam any email sent from your email address.
