for Harvard alumni!
The HAA has recently introduced a
really cool service for alumni - permanent email
addresses and permanent email forwarding. To get one,
visit the HAA web site.
The service is called
"Post.Harvard". You get a permanent email
address of the form
"[yourname]@post.harvard.edu". Any email sent
to that email address gets forwarded to you, wherever you
specify. If you change jobs, move, or want to get your
email at home and not at work, you just go to the web
site and change the forwarding address.

addresses -- it's easy and fast!) Go to the

there. It takes three days for that info. to be
entered in the database -- but that will be used to
verify a Post.Harvard registry.

is found within the 'help' section of Post.Harvard.
