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 Gmail.
For help connecting other clients, see Eckerd's Google Apps FAQ.
How do I access account options?
Settings can be found by clicking the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen, just below where your email appears. Vacation messages can be set from the "General" settings tab. From the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab, you can choose to forward your e-mail automatically to another address.
How do I change my password?
To change your password, go to your Google Account Settings. Under "Signing in" click on "Password."
What if I forget my password?
Visit the Forgot Your Password page, or the myEckerd page. You will be asked 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, firstname.lastname@example.org can update it for you.
