To assist you in transitioning to a different institution, you may keep your math account files and e-mails on our server for up to 3 months after departure. During that time we can assist you in moving files and existing e-mail (detailed steps below). After your account is closed, we can continue forwarding future incoming e-mails to your new address for a requested duration up to 3 years, and we can re-direct future incoming web requests to your new web address for a requested duration up to 3 years.
Note that future server rebuilds or other departmental infrastructure changes may prevent such a forward or re-direct from continuing for the entire requested duration, but we will strive to do so for up to 3 years.
Actively communicate your plans and wishes
Steps you should take before departing Baton Rouge
You cannot access our Windows systems remotely, so you must complete the previous step before departing Baton Rouge. If you have already left Baton Rouge, contact us to check your Windows account and assist you in obtaining those files.
Steps you should take as soon as you obtain your new e-mail address
If you obtain your new e-mail address prior to departing Baton Rouge, we urge you to complete the following steps from within our department, as we can then provide in-person assistance.
Steps you should take as soon as you have file storage elsewhere
Verify that your account is truly empty
Request closure and forwarding
Once both your account and e-mail are empty (see steps above), please send us a message containing appropriate instructions along the following lines:
Math Tech Support,
I have moved my existing LSU Math e-mail and account files. My LSU Math account
is completely empty, and you may close it at your convenience.
My new e-mail address is email@example.com. Since I did not use an LSU
Math e-mail address, there is no need to forward mail.
My new e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I was actively using the
LSU Math address email@example.com, and expect to receive more mail at
that address, thus would like you to please forward future incoming e-mail to my
new address for 3 years. I understand the forward may disappear sooner due to
future departmental server rebuilds or other infrastructure changes.
Since I did not have an LSU Math website, there is no need to re-direct future
incoming web requests
My new website address is somewhere.edu/~mynewaddress. I had an active LSU Math
website at the address https://www.math.lsu.edu/~myoldaddress, and would like you
o re-direct future incoming web requests to my new address for 3 years. I understand
the re-direct may disappear sooner due to future departmental server rebuilds or
other infrastructure changes.
In case you need to reach me, my telephone number is (xxx) xxx-xxxx.
Note that you may request forwards and redirects for less than 3 years (some people see such services as a source of spam and wish to limit their exposure), but no more than 3 years.
