An email alias, is an alternate email address, which has the ability to receive and send emails for another email account or domain. With an USFSP email alias (for the usfsp.edu domain), faculty and staff have the ability to receive emails to and send email from their USF Gmail (the mail.usf.edu domain) account. Shared USFSP email aliases can also be created for departments, groups, and special events.
An alias recipient is the person that will receive emails sent to an email alias. After a USF Gmail email address has been added as an alias recipient to an email alias, the alias recipient will immediately begin receiving emails (in their USF Gmail Inbox). In order to send emails, as the USFSP email alias, the alias recipient will need to add the USFSP email alias to their USF Gmail account.
USFSP email aliases will be in the form of email@example.com. The alias_name will be either:
- The USF NetID username of an individual (or personal) USFSP email alias or
- A department, group, or event name for a shared USFSP email alias
Individual (or personal) USFSP email aliases are created, for all eligible faculty and staff, after the online Bayboro Account Request Form has been received by Campus Computing. There will only be one alias recipient per individual USFSP email alias. Shared email aliases can have multiple alias recipients. Each alias recipient, of a shared email address, will need to add the shared USFSP email alias to their USF Gmail account in order to send emails as the USFSP email alias.
