Subject: All Faculty/Staff Can Receive Arizona.edu Email Starting Sept. 16

Date: September 9, 2019

**The UA will be implementing the first step towards adding the capability of using @arizona.edu for your UA email address. With this first step, no action is required.**  

Beginning Monday, September 16, 2019, all faculty, staff, emeritus, DCC, and departmental/service accounts will be able to RECEIVE email at <NetID>@arizona.edu. This change does not affect student email.

How does this work?

Email will continue to be RECEIVED at <NetID>@email.arizona.edu, and both @email.arizona.edu and @arizona.edu addresses will be active. For example:

Wilbur Wildcat, with NetID wilbur, gives out his business card with wilbur@arizona.edu. However others may have had his "old" email address, wilbur@email.arizona.edu. Email sent to either address will be received in Wilbur's inbox. When Wilbur responds to an email, the "From" address will show wilbur@email.arizona.edu

This change should not affect anyone with customizations applied (e.g. @tla.arizona.edu). UA services (e.g. Office 365, Adobe, etc.) that use your @email.arizona.edu address to log in will continue to use your @email.arizona.edu address.

What does this mean?

After September 16th, faculty and staff may publicize <NetID>@arizona.edu in their email signature, business cards, or other contacts listings to RECEIVE UA email. A team of campus IT professionals is working towards a larger implementation of being able to "Send As" <NetID>@arizona.edu in 2020.

This phased approach of adopting @arizona.edu as the primary email address has been made in response to the UAVoice request and many others who have supported this option for a simplified branding and email experience. UAVoice (formerly the Campaign for Common Sense) is a Universitywide initiative that is identifying opportunities to facilitate collaboration, encourage innovation, reduce frustration, and save both money and time.
