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: sto77@rice.edu
  • 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.
  • Vanity email address: Sammy.Owl@rice.edu
To create a new email alias, login to mynetid.rice.edu.


Welcome to the Rice Online Account Management System

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.
