NetID - Creating a Email Alias (also known as Vanity Email)
How to set up a vanity email address for current students, faculty, and staff.
With the activation of your NetID, you are automatically assigned two email addresses:
- NetID address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Official full name address: Samson.The.Owl@rice.edu
You can create up to three personalized @rice.edu addresses that also called email aliases or vanity email addresses. Select vanity addresses carefully since you will not be able to delete or modify them later.
To create a new email alias, login to mynetid.rice.edu.
- Vanity email address: Sammy.Owl@rice.edu
Click the Create a vanity email address button or the Create Email Alias link in the left menu.
Email aliases must contain at least three characters, can only contain lowercase letters, number, dash (-) or a period (.), and the must begin with a letter but end with either a letter or a number. After you enter an alias and click Submit.
