Setting an Email Archive alias

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

To create an easy-to-remember alias address for your Email Archive:

  1. In the menubar of the relevant site, click Email Archive.

  2. Click Options.

  3. In the "Site Email Address" field, type the alias you want to use as the initial part of the email address for the archive (i.e., the part before the  @  symbol).

  4. Click Update Options.

  5. You will now see your aliased address as well as the autogenerated address on the main Email Archive screen, for example: Email sent to the following addresses will be archived and sent to participants: german112sect3592@local-sakai.institution.edu 1105113863261-20909@local-sakai.institution.edu

    In this example, german112sect3592 was the alias entered in step 3.
