Graduate Access to Computing and Network Resources
As a graduate, Information Technology wants you to be
successful in transitioning your email and data from Butler's
systems to wherever you choose. Please read the following
You will lose access to Butler printers immediately following
On August 1st, after graduation, your ability to access Butler
computer systems will end and all data in your accounts will be
deleted. This includes BUmail, my.butler.edu, Blackboard, Moodle,
Google Apps and all other systems that require your Butler username
and password. An email alert will be sent before your access is
discontinued. You should do the following PRIOR to August 1st in
order to save your data before it is deleted.
Beginning August 1st, email sent to your Butler address
will not be accessible via BUmail. The only way to get mail sent to
your Butler address is to forward it to another email system (e.g.
hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc.).
To setup email forwarding:
Go to http://bumail.butler.edu and
click Forwarding Options in the lower right
Mail forwarding service is provided for one year. After one
year, your email will no longer be forwarded and any messages sent
to your Butler address will be returned to the sender. Prior
to the end of that year, you need to contact any important
individuals and give them your new email address.
Exporting Emails and Contacts:
Please visit our Exporting Emails page for more
Once you have set up forwarding, all email currently in your
BUmail account will remain there even though new mail is being
forwarded. In order to keep your old emails you will need to email
them to your new account or connect a mail client such
as Outlook or Thunderbird to your mailbox and copy your
messages and contacts. See "Access Butler Email Via an Email Client"
All-campus alerts and Butler Connection messages will continue
to go to graduates. Graduates will remain on organization listservs
(i.e., Greek houses) unless the organization removes them.
Butler's main web site is available for a lifetime, including
Career Services functions. Be sure to register at www.butler.edu/alumni.
IT has enjoyed serving your technology needs during your time at
Butler and we wish you the best of luck in the future!
