  • To request a change to directory please send your request to maildir@ed.ac.uk  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​(please note that this is a not a general contact address for University enquiries)
  • Specify whether you need a personal alias (e.g. firstname.lastname @ed.ac.uk) or a functional shared account one (e.g. librarian @ed.ac.uk).
  • For functional aliases, please also provide some information about the purpose of the alias.
  • Specify the target address of the account (usually in the format username @exseed.ed.ac.uk)
  • Please do not request multiple personal aliases as these are not permitted unless you are changing your name.
