Purpose: The University offers complimentary email addresses as a service to Millikin alumni. This service is made possible through generous support from members of the Class of 2008.
Policy: By requesting or using a Millikin University Alumni email account, the user automatically accepts the following terms and conditions:
Storage Limits and Account Inactivity
Individual users are granted 100 MB total storage space. When an account reaches 90% capacity, the user receives a warning message stating that s/he is approaching the storage limit. When this limit is reached, new email messages cannot be received and the user receives email notification that the storage limit has been reached. The user must then delete or archive old emails to allow the account to receive new messages.
To maximize available space, inactive accounts are automatically purged from the system according to the following schedule:
After 365 days of continuous non-use, the user receives an email warning of account inactivation. Following an additional 30 days of non-use, the account is inactivated and its contents purged. Purged information cannot be recovered. After an additional 180 days of non-use, the account is permanently deleted. An inactivated account may be reactivated within the 180 day window; however, individual emails cannot be recovered.
Users may maintain one Millikin-owned email account at any given time. Multiple accounts registered to the same user are not permitted.
In the event an alumnus with an alumni email account enrolls as a student at Millikin or becomes employed by the University or its affiliates, the email account in use by that person is reclassified and is subject to the applicable student or employee email policy.
Establishing an Account
Alumni who graduated before May 2007 or alumni that have completed at least 12 semester hours of credit at Millikin may submit a request for an alumni email account.
For requested Alumni email accounts, the following naming scheme will be used:
Firstname initial + lastname + -alum
e.g. James Walker Smith = email@example.com
Firstname initial + middlename initial + lastname + –alum
e.g. James Walker Smith = firstname.lastname@example.org
First 2 letters of firstname + lastname + –alum
e.g. James Walker Smith = email@example.com
Firstname + lastname + –alum
e.g. James Walker Smith = firstname.lastname@example.org
The alumni email service is intended for personal use and, as such, alumni email accounts may not be used to create or transmit unsolicited bulk electronic messages (commonly known as “spam”), content intended for commercial gain, or content which violates applicable state or federal laws.
Users are solely responsible for any content they create or transmit while using the system.
Alumni email accounts are University-owned and subject to inactivation at the University’s sole discretion.
The University is not responsible for any content received by the user from another person or entity, and furthermore is not liable for any physical, emotional or mechanical damage arising from use of the system.
The University reserves the right to alter or terminate the alumni email service at any time.
These terms and conditions may be amended or altered at anytime, with or without prior notice. The University or its agent will notify users via email of any changes to the Alumni Email Policy.
Applies to: All Millikin University Alumni email accounts.
