Help: e-Mail Alias  


 

Please note that a Computer Society alias is not an e-mail account, it is a forwarding service that directs mail to your real e-mail address.

What do you have questions about?


  • Are you having trouble setting up your e-mail address@computer.org?
  1. Have you properly set up an Alias?
    In order to use e-mail forwarding you must set up an e-mail alias here.  Please note that you must have a Web Account to set up an alias but you can not use your CS E-Account user name as your alias@computer.org.   It is possible to set your alias and your IEEE Web Account to the same name but it is not necessary.  Once you have set up your alias it could take up to 24 hours for it to become functional.
  2. Are you entering the correct e-mail address for your Alias?
    You must enter your alias exactly as you registered it or mail that is sent to it will bounce.  If you have forgotten your alias please send a message explaining the problem along with your member number to postmaster@ieee.org
  • Do you want to change your forwarding address?
    If you still have access to your old e-mail address (the e-mail address your alias is currently set to forward to) then you can change the forwarding address yourself here.  You will have to enter your Web Account information and your new e-mail address.  A validation code will be sent to your old address along with the web address where you need to enter the validation code.  The validation code must be entered on our site in order for your requested address change to become effective.  After the change has been verified it will take up to 24 hours for mail sent to your alias to begin routing to the new e-mail address.

If you no longer have access to your old e-mail address please send your new e-mail address, your user name and your member number to postmaster@ieee.org requesting the change.  After the change has been made it will take up to 24 hours for mail sent to your alias to begin routing to the new e-mail address.
