Email forwarding service to be discontinued.
The NC State Alumni Association will be phasing out the @alumni.ncsu.edu email forwarding service due to low utilization and recent Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) policy changes. The DMARC updates made by most email providers are adversely affecting alumni users with @alumni.ncsu.edu forwarding aliases. The DMARC changes were designed to reduce email fraud.
Unfortunately, DMARC issues are beyond our control. We’ve already received reports from alumni who are not receiving emails through the forwarding service because those emails have been rejected by other email providers.
Few alumni associations are still offering email forwarding services, and we’ve seen a decrease in new accounts. As a result, the NC State alumni email forwarding service has run its course. We apologize for any inconvenience this change will cause.
Alumni with @alumni.ncsu.edu email forwarding accounts are encouraged to immediately provide contacts with an alternative email address. The service will continue through Aug. 31, 2017, to allow alumni time to update their contacts.
