Tech Tip: Setting Up Your Email Alias

Did you know you can set up an alias to your SHSU e-mail account?

Here is how you do it:


Requesting an Alias

Log into SamWeb

Go to the IT@Sam tab

Click Account Alias Request


Once here, you can request an e-mail alias. Once approved, you will be able to receive e-mail at this address just as you would any other address.

Note: Changing your alias does not change your username. You will always log in with your username


Making it Primary

After your alias has been approved, the last step is to make it primary. The primary e-mail address is the address that will show up whenever someone reads an e-mail from you.

This is found on the same page as the alias request page.
