Harvard Alumni Affairs and Development offers an email forwarding service to all Harvard University alumni.
A Post.Harvard email address is an address in the format firstname.lastname@example.org, which can be set to forward to a designated email address. Alumni can create a Post.Harvard address by registering for Alumni.Harvard, then activating email forwarding.
- A Post.Harvard address is not a stand-alone email account. Rather, it is a service that will forward messages to a designated email address. In order to receive messages sent to a Post.Harvard address, forwarding must be activated.
- It is not possible to retrieve messages directly from a Post.Harvard email address, either through the web or using a desktop email program. Messages sent to a Post.Harvard address can only be retrieved through the address to which mail is being forwarded.
- Post.Harvard email addresses are separate from other Harvard email addresses, such as student addresses. Creating a Post.Harvard email address will not allow alumni to continue receiving mail through student addresses after these addresses have expired.
