FAQ: You say I have to apply for an Exchange account. Does this mean I will now have two email addresses

Yes and no. You will continue to receive all mail sent to your familiar email address ('net-id@iastate.edu'). When you send mail to others it will have 'net-id@iastate.edu' as the return address. To the world at large it will appear that your email address is 'net-id@iastate.edu'. However, you will also now have an account on the Exchange server. This account will be in the form 'net-id@extension.iastate.edu'. Two accounts are necessary so that you can take advantage of the full functionality of the Exchange server while continuing to benefit from an easy-to-remember email address and from the features provided through the central campus mail server.
