As of 2014, all students who graduate from UCT are automatically provisioned with an alumni email address, firstname.lastname@example.org. This alumni email address is created as an alias to your current myUCT mailbox and will be used as the default email address when sending an email.
Your email@example.com email address will still remain active and you can choose to use it by selecting it in the From dropdown menu when you compose an email.
Even though you will have access to your myUCT mailbox for life, you can choose to ignore this mailbox once you leave UCT. Should you ever need to change your password navigate to Password Self-Service or log a call with the IT Helpdesk.
