Re: Use of University of Manitoba e-mail addresses required of all students
January 11} 2011
The Convocation Office corresponds with all graduating students through e-mail only. We no longer
send graduation and convocation information through Canada Post.
As a result of the e-mail difficulties we experienced with service providers outside the University this
past fall} all e-mails are being sent to graduating students} U of M e-mail addresses ONLY. All students}
including all Graduate students} MUST use their umanitoba accounts.
Students graduating February 2} 2011 must use their umanitoba account. IF they do not have a umanitoba e-mail address in their Aurora record} information will be sent automatically to the personal account. However} if there is a umanitoba account} IT WILL BE USED.
If they have an account but have forgotten their passwords} they can call 474-9788 or stop by the Computer Support offices (123 Fletcher Argue) .
Students who are current1ly registered and who have not claimed their accounts can do so at umanitoba.ca/claimid .
If they have an account but have forgotten their passwords} they can call 474-9788 or stop by the Computer Support offices (123 Fletcher Argue).
These accounts do have limited space and must be ucleaned ouf} regularly to ensure that critical e-mails reach the recipients.
I am asking your assistance in this. I believe you are one of the groups of people on campus which has regular contact with Graduate students. Could I ask you to please advise all your Graduate students
that they need to claim their accounts and check them regularly. They should not forward their U of M account to an outside provider in case we run into a similar situation as this past fall.
If there are any questions} please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org .ca or 6018).
Than~ so much} everybody! ! I really appreciate your help in this.
