Email for Life
What is my alumni e-mail address?
Your e-mail address is your account name with @eckerd.edu at the end. If you don't have an alumni e-mail address and would like one, please fill out the Eckerd College Alumni Email (for Life) Request Form.
**Important Note** Everyone has the same e-mail system, but certain other sites are only used by current students. For example, alumni are not able to access the library remote databases using their e-mail username and password.
How do I use mail?
Eckerd's e-mail is provided by Google. You can use the Gmail web interface, or connect your mail client or mobile device. To use the web interface, open your web browser of choice and visit Eckerd Gmail.
For help connecting other clients, see Eckerd's Google Apps FAQ.
How do I access account options?
The settings link is an icon in the upper right corner of the screen. A vacation messages can be set from the "General" settings tab. You can also choose to forward your e-mail automatically to another address. To do so, visit the "Forwarding" tab.
How do I change my password?
To change your password click on your name just to the left of the settings gear, then click Account Settings. Then click Changing your password (under "Security")
What if I forget my password?
If you have forgotten your password, visit the the Forgot Your Password page. You can find this link by coming to this page, or by going to the myEckerd login page (remember, you wont be able to login to myEckerd, but it will still get you to the password reset page).
The Forgot Your Password page will ask you for your username, your date of birth, and the alternate e-mail address we have on file for you. If we don't have the correct contact information, Alumni Relations can update it for you.
