Cedarville University offers ongoing email services for former students! "Email for Life "(EFL) is not just a forwarding service; alumni have an actual Google mail account at Cedarville. If you would prefer to use our forwarding service rather than having an actual email account at Cedarville, click here.




Starting in 2013, students who graduate will automatically have an EFL account. Other alumni may setup an EFL account using a simple CedarInfo transaction. There is no charge for EFL.

http://www.cedarville.edu/google - you can use a web browser to connect.

Anyone who has earned academic credit from Cedarville University is eligible to have an email account. (The University reserves the right to deny an account for anyone with past-due financial obligations or for other reasons at the University's discretion.)

Your CedarInfo password will also be used for EFL.

You will keep whatever username you currently have (i.e., the username that you use to access CedarInfo or the alumni directory). EFL messages addressed to you should use either of the following formats:

johnksmith@cedarville.edu
johnksmith@alumni.cedarville.edu

The return address which will appear on all mail sent from your EFL account will show 'username@cedarville.edu'.

You may request a change to your username via CedarInfo (Individual Transactions). Changing your username will also change your email address.

It is the University's intent to provide this service for an extended period of time ("for life"), but the University reserves the right to terminate the entire "Email for Life" offering at any time. Individual accounts may be terminated at the University's discretion.

How long messages remain in your mailbox is determined by Google policy. At this point, messages are never deleted from Google mail accounts.

The University will exercise caution in sending email to your "Email for Life" account. Any email sent will be for official University business only. Your EFL address will not be sold or given away to outside individuals or organizations.

You can look up email addresses for alumni who have chosen to release their addresses by using the online alumni directory. You may want to go into the directory and make your own email address visible to others.

Faculty and staff members may be found using Find a Person.

The EFL account should not be used for sending spam, harassing messages, or messages with unethical or illegal purposes. Messages sent from the account should be honoring to the Lord in content and tone.

Each Google EFL account will be given an allotted space of 25 gibabytes. Attachments are limited to 25 megabytes each.

You can use CedarInfo to terminate your EFL account. You may re-activate your EFL account by returning to CedarInfo and running the "Email for Life" transaction, however messages and calendar entries in your original account may be lost.
