Departments can also sponsor an Exchange mailbox for someone not employed by the university or enrolled as a student and who has a legitimate need to access university email by creating an affiliate account.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to maintain personal off-campus email accounts in addition to their Exchange Online mailbox. Exchange Online mailboxes are contingent on employment. For more information, see Leaving the University.
