Why is Dartmouth making this change?

Newer, free e-mail programs offer more features, better performance, and stronger controls to protect users from spam and other unwanted messages than the old BlitzMail system.

Only about 6 percent of alumni used a Dartmouth e-mail account regularly in 2012. Nearly all of Dartmouth's peer schools provide e-mail forwarding only – as we will – rather than trying to compete with free services such as Gmail and Hotmail.

We also have heard from many students and alumni over the years that they would prefer a "dartmouth.edu" e-mail address rather than an "alum.dartmouth.org" address. This change allows us to give students an e-mail address that they may keep for life.

When will this switch occur?

We will contact alumni throughout 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 to provide information about this transition. We expect that no alumni will use BlitzMail following March of 2014.

How do I forward e-mail from my Dartmouth account?

You need to forward e-mail from your existing account to ensure that you continue receiving messages sent to your old alum.dartmouth.org address. Here's how:

  1. Log into to the Dartmouth Directory Manager with your NetID and password to see if your account is already forwarding to a non-dartmouth account or to set this up.
  2. Click E-mail Delivery Options found at the bottom of the right hand navigation bar.
  3. Place a check in the Enable Forwarding field, then enter the e-mail address that you want your dartmouth.org and dartmouth.edu e-mail forwarded to in the Address to which you would like your e-mail delivered field.
  4. If you've used your dartmouth.org account in the past, log into webblitz.dartmouth.edu and migrate any messages or personal mailing list information to the account you just selected to forward your mail to. Steps on how to do this are provided below.

What is my Dartmouth.edu address?

Your Dartmouth.edu address is your full name, followed by a class designation, followed by "@dartmouth.edu". (e.g. John.A.Doe.08@dartmouth.edu).

Top of page

What are the e-mail suffixes (designations) for each class?

Undergraduate e-mail addresses will have their two digit class year for their class designation. Graduate students will have the following designations:

  • Arts and Sciences – all arts and science graduate students will have "gr" instead of a year as their designation. There will be no specific class affiliation. (e.g. john.a.doe.gr@dartmouth.edu). This includes students in the TDI and MHDCS programs.
  • Geisel - all Geisel School graduate students will have "med" instead of a year as their designation. There will be no specific class affiliation (e.g. john.a.doe.med@dartmouth.edu)
  • Thayer – all Thayer School graduate students will have "th" instead of a year as their designation. There will be no specific class affiliation. (e.g. john.a.doe.th@dartmouth.edu)
  • Tuck – all Tuck School students will have "tu" PLUS their class year as their designation. (e.g. john.a.doe.tu08@dartmouth.edu)

How do I find other alumni e-mail addresses?

The DND Lookup functionality will continue. You can go to dndlookup.dartmouth.edu, enter their name or a partial name, check Dartmouth Alumni then click Search.

How do I get a free e-mail account so I can forward my Dartmouth mail to?

Dartmouth will help you get a new account at one of two places: Microsoft or Google. Once you have a non-Dartmouth account, we can help you forward your Dartmouth e-mail to that new account, move your saved e-mail from your Dartmouth account to that new account, and, if you like, configure the new account to send mail as if it were coming from you at your Dartmouth.edu address.

Setting up a Microsoft Outlook Account

Go to signup.live.com. Enter the information as prompted.

Setting up a Google Gmail Account

Go to accounts.google.com and click Sign Up found in the upper right corner. Enter the information as prompted.

Can I use BlitzMail with my new e-mail address ending in Dartmouth.edu?

No. There will not be a Dartmouth mailbox attached to your dartmouth.edu account. This is an e-mail forwarding service only. You must have an e-mail account to use with your Dartmouth.edu address. See instructions above for setting up a free e-mail account.

Top of page

Can I send e-mail from a nickname/alias?

Yes. Add your nickname by following the instructions above that describe how to configure a Microsoft or Google account to send e-mail as if it were coming from a dartmouth.edu account. But rather than entering your full e-mail address as the alternate e-mail address (e.g. john.s.doe.08@dartmouth.edu) enter an e-mail address with your nickname (e.g. john.doe@dartmouth.edu). Ensure that you have received e-mail at this address previously, otherwise you will not be able to verify the address.

Top of page

I want to change the address to which my dartmouth.org and dartmouth.edu accounts forward. How do I do that?

To change the account to which your Dartmouth.edu and Dartmouth.org accounts forward:

  1. Log into the Dartmouth Directory Manager (https://dartdm.dartmouth.edu/) using your NetID and password.
  2. In the navigation bar on the right side of the screen, click e-mail Delivery Options.
  3. Next, place a check in the Enable Forwarding field.
  4. In the Address to which you would like your e-mail delivered field, enter the full e-mail address to which you want any messages sent to your Dartmouth.edu or Dartmouth.org accounts to go. (e.g. john.a.doe@gmail.com). Do NOT enter your Dartmouth.edu or Dartmouth.org addresses in this field.
  5. Double-check the address for accuracy, then click Update Delivery Address.

It is important to note that if you are an alumna or alumnus who works at Dartmouth, taking this step also will forward your work e-mail to the address you specified. If you are an alumna or alumnus who has returned as a student, this also will forward your student e-mail to the address you specified.

Once you click Update Delivery Address, mail will start flowing to the e-mail address you specified. If that address doesn't exist, or if you do not have access to the account you specified, Dartmouth will not be able to recover any messages that were addressed to that account.

Top of page

Can I get training on the new account?

Training on your new account would be provided through the provider with whom you chose to set up an account (e.g. Microsoft or Google).

Top of page

I'm an alumna or alumnus and a staff member. Will I have two mailboxes?

No. Each alumna or alumnus will have only one dartmouth.edu address. This includes Dartmouth employees. If you are a staff member your e-mail address will not have your class designation as part of the address, although messages sent to that address (e.g. john.s.doe.08@dartmouth.edu) should still be delivered to your dartmouth.edu mailbox. If you leave your job at Dartmouth, your dartmouth.edu mailbox will be shut down, but your dartmouth.edu address with your class designation will be retained. In that case, you would need to forward your dartmouth.edu e-mail to another e-mail account.

Top of page

I'm an alumna or an alumnus and a current student. Will I have two mailboxes?

No. Each alumna or alumnus will have only one dartmouth.edu address. This includes Dartmouth students. While you are an active student your e-mail address will have a mailbox attached to it. When you leave Dartmouth, your dartmouth.edu mailbox will be shut down, but your dartmouth.edu address with your class designation on it will be retained. In that case, you would need to forward your dartmouth.edu e-mail to another e-mail account.

Top of page

I'm an alumna or an alumnus with multiple degrees from Dartmouth. How does this affect me?

You will have only one Dartmouth.edu account. Your class designation in your address will be your original class affiliation with Dartmouth (e.g. undergraduate rather than Tuck). If you would prefer to have your second, or subsequent, class designation appear as part of your official dartmouth.edu address, contact the Help Desk and they will be able to make this change for you.

Top of page

I'm a graduating student. How does this affect me?

Sixty days after commencement, your dartmouth.edu mailbox will be shut down. Prior to that time you must set up forwarding of your Dartmouth.edu account to a non-dartmouth account and migrate any messages and addresses that you want to keep to another location. Mail will continue to be able to be sent to your Dartmouth.edu address and will be delivered to you as long as you forward your Dartmouth.edu account to an account you own.

I'm a graduating student who will become a staff member within 60 days after Commencement. How does this affect me?

When you become a staff member your e-mail address will change to remove the class designation as part of the address, although messages sent to that address (e.g. john.s.doe.08@dartmouth.edu) should still be delivered to your dartmouth.edu mailbox. If you leave your job at Dartmouth, your dartmouth.edu mailbox will be shut down, but your dartmouth.edu address with your class designation will be retained. In that case, you would need to forward your dartmouth.edu e-mail to another e-mail account and migrate any messages and addresses that you want to keep to another location.

Top of page

I've never used my Dartmouth.org account but want to use a Dartmouth.edu account now that is an option. Will this be available to me?

Yes. All alumni can use a dartmouth.edu address. To begin, you simply need to log into the Dartmouth Directory manager and set up forwarding (see more detail about this above).

Top of page

Will I still be able to look up alumni addresses in the DND?

Yes. Go to dndlookup.dartmouth.edu to search for fellow alums.

Top of page

Can I use a mobile device with this account?

You may be able to use your mobile device to connect to your non-dartmouth personal account, but that is dependent upon which vendor you use. You should contact that vendor directly for additional information.

Top of page

What software do I need to use this account?

You do not need any specific software for your dartmouth.edu account. The software that you chose for your non-dartmouth personal e-mail account to which your forward your dartmouth.edu and dartmouth.org messages is dependent upon which vendor you use for that account. Both Microsoft and Google accounts can be access via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.)

Top of page

Can I set up an alias (nickname) for my Dartmouth.edu account that will allow me to receive e-mail messages that are sent to my alias (nickname)?

Once the alumni Blitzmail servers are shut down, and all alumni accounts are moved to the Dartmouth.edu realm, you will be able to set up two aliases for your Dartmouth.edu account.

Top of page

I don't want a Dartmouth.edu account. What should I do?

You don't need to take any action. If you do not forward your Dartmouth.edu account to another e-mail account that you use, you will not receive any mail sent to your dartmouth.org or dartmouth.edu addresses. Once all alumni accounts are transitioned, our name lookup system will show that your account is not being forwarded, so anyone who looks you up in that system will see that the mailbox is not used. (Prior to the entire transition being completed, anyone looking up your address will not know whether it is active or not.) In addition, anyone who sends e-mail to a dartmouth.edu alumni address that is not forwarded will receive a return message letting them know that the account has not been set up.

Where can I get more information?

Please contact the Alumni Help Desk if you have additional questions:

Questions Specific to Existing Dartmouth.ORG Accounts

What will happen to e-mail sent to my dartmouth.org address after this switch occurs?

Following the steps above will set up your dartmouth.org address as an "alias," or nickname for your Dartmouth.edu account. This means that any mail sent to your old alumni address will be forwarded to your dartmouth.edu address. You can direct this e-mail to a new mailbox of your choosing.

Top of page

What will happen to my Dartmouth.org account?

Your Dartmouth.org mailbox will be deleted sometime in early, 2014. If you have set up forwarding (see above), any e-mail sent to your Dartmouth.org account will continue to forward to your Dartmouth.edu address for life.

Top of page

I think I set up forwarding on my Dartmouth.org account a long time ago. How can I check that address?

Note: Dartmouth copied all forwarding addresses from the alumni Blitzmail servers to the new system early in 2013. If you had forwarding set up at that time, it will automatically be the address where your new Dartmouth.edu account forwards. However, if you changed it since the time of the copy in either the BlitzMail software or in Webblitz, that setting will not carry over to the new system. You must enable it in the Dartmouth Directory Manager. We recommend everyone very there address in the Directory Manager following the steps below:

  1. Log into the Dartmouth Directory Manager (https://dartdm.dartmouth.edu/) using your NetID and password.
  2. In the navigation bar on the right side of the screen, click E-mail Delivery Options.
  3. The e-mail address that appears in the Address to which you would like your e-mail delivered field, is the address to which any messages sent to your dartmouth.org and dartmouth.edu accounts will be forwarded.

Top of page

I already forward my Dartmouth.org account to another address. How does this change affect me?

We copied all forwarding addresses from Dartmouth.org accounts into the corresponding dartmouth.edu account in early 2013 so you shouldn't have to do anything; mail will continue to be forwarded to the e-mail account you already designated. However, if you changed it since the time of the copy in either the BlitzMail software or in Webblitz, that setting will not carry over to the new system. You must enable it in the Dartmouth Directory Manager. We recommend everyone very there address in the Directory Manager following the steps above.

Additionally, you may want to update your contacts so they know that your e-mail address is now <name.class designation@dartmouth.edu>, but your dartmouth.org account will also continue to work as long as you leave the forwarding address in place.

Top of page

What will happen to the e-mail in my Dartmouth.org account? Will I lose any mail?

You will need to move the e-mail out of your BlitzMail account and into a new e-mail service by the end of March 2014 (see instructions below). We will attempt to notify all BlitzMail users before they are expected to transition into a new service. If you elect not to move any messages or other saved content from your dartmouth.org account, it will be lost once the alumni BlitzMail servers are shut down.

No future e-mail should be lost if you set up your mail forwarding properly and follow the instructions (below) for moving e-mail from your BlitzMail account into another e-mail account.

How do I manage dartmouth.edu aliases?

Alumni who have transitioned to the forwarding service (which until March 12, 2014 must be done by contacting the Alumni Help Desk) can log into the Dartmouth Directory Manger at https://dartdm.dartmouth.edu. Alumni can set up to 2 email aliases for their new @dartmouth.edu address. The editable part of the alias will be "full name text" that precedes the Dartmouth email address suffix. For example, the email address for Dartmouth undergraduates is your full name, followed by a class designation, followed by "@dartmouth.edu". (e.g. John.A.Doe.08@dartmouth.edu). Aliases can be changed at any time.

Note: Alumni should know that aliases from the legacy @alum.dartmouth.org BlitzMail system were saved. Those aliases cannot be changed (no additions, modifications or deletions). They will not be visible to anyone. The legacy aliases will be preserved in order to prevent mail delivery interruptions for alumni.

Alumni can log into the Dartmouth Directory Manager to set aliases by following the steps below:

  1. Log into the Dartmouth Directory Manager using your NetID and password.
  2. In the navigation bar on the right side of the screen, click Email Aliases.
  3. Click the Delete button found next to any alias at which you no longer want to receive e-mail.
