Groupwise: Create an Email Alias

Creating an email alias will allow you to give out an email address using a name other than your login name. It will not create a new email account; it will simply redirect off-campus email with the alias address to your regular GroupWise account.

  1. Log in to CedarInfo.
  2. Under "Individual (General) Transactions" click "Set your email alias (for receiving Internet email)."
  3. To select an email alias, you may either:
    • Select one of the email aliases provided and click [Submit Choice] OR
    • If you would like to create an alias that is different than those suggested, type the alias of your choice into the box provided and click [Submit Choice].  


  • Aliases submitted in this manner are manually approved by Information Technology before they are enabled, and this process could take up to several days.
  • The alias must contain your last name. Please remember to select an alias that reflects a professional approach.
  • Aliases may contain letters and numbers but no punctuation, spaces, or other special characters.
