 Detailinformation

A personal mailbox is made for use by a natural person.

The following data has to be entered when creating a personal mailbox:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • E-Mail / Sender address
  • Alias (optional)
  • Quota pool
  • Allocated storage

Mail Acc erstellen S2 EN

  • Alias
    • An e-mail alias is an alternative e-mail address that points to an existing user account.

Example:

The user "m.mustermann@sample-institution.rwth-aachen.de" wants to receive e-mails sent to "m.musterfrau@rwth-aachen.de" as well.

If you create "m.musterfrau@rwth-aachen.de" as the email alias for "m.mustermann@sample-institution.rwth-aachen.de", the emails from both email addresses (recipient email addresses) will be sent to the same inbox.

Any number of aliases can be created for an existing e-mail address.

  • Distribution groups
    • In this field you can enter membership in one ot more distribution groups 
  • Quota pool
    • By clicking the arrow on the right end of the box you can choose the quota pool where the data of the mailaccount shall be saved.
  • Allocated storage
    • The available storage for the mailaccount can be determined here.

After entering the information needed, it is possible to connect the personal mailbox to an existing username (format: ab123456) from the Identity Management.
Linking account to Identity management

If the connection with the Identity Management is etablished immediately, a confirmation mail for creating a new personal mailbox will be send to the contact e-mail address of the username (format: ab123456).

If the connection with the Identity Management is not etablished immediately, it has to be done subsequently by the person that will use the personal mailbox.

To do so the Coupon-Code that is generated in the last step has to be redeemed at www.rwth-aachen.de/go. During this process the user also submits their username (format: ab123456).
