Primary Email Address
(The screenshot is currently available in German only. We ask for your kind understanding.)
Several variants for email addresses are available for your personal mailbox, e.g.:
- firstname.lastname@example.org, e.g. email@example.com
E-Mail Addresses of the first kind are always connected to the respective mailboxes.
E-Mail Addresses of the second kind are only available to university staff.
The third kind of E-Mail Addresses finally contains the faculty the user's institute belongs to, like the Faculty of Humanities in the above example.
One of these e-mail addresses is defined as the primary e-mail address which should be used for services such as E-mail, SharePoint etc.
You can check and manage your email aliases at GWDG's Customer Portal in the “My account” section.
