What is an Email Alias?

A primary email address is created for all students, staff, and faculty members when they join the university. For staff and faculty, this is based on your first and last name (firstname.lastname@humboldt.edu). For students, this is created using your initials and a string of numbers (abc123@humboldt.edu).

You may also choose an email alias - an alternate email address (eg firstname@humboldt.edu) - to use for incoming and outgoing emails that uses the same underlying primary account.
