Forwarding Disclaimer

Students who redirect e-mail from their official address to another address (such as AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, or any e-mail server other than the official Students.Dominican.edu servers) do so at their own risk. Having e-mail lost as a result of redirection does not absolve a student from the responsibilities associated with communication sent to his or her official e-mail address. The University is not responsible for the handling of e-mail by outside vendors or unofficial servers.


With the Dominican e-mail account you will receive various informative messages that will be sent to various student distribution lists.  Individuals who misuse these lists and send 'SPAM' messages, or inappropriate messages of any kind, will have their e-mail account marked as a SPAMMER by the IT Department.  If your e-mail address is marked as a SPAMMER you will no longer be able to send messages to anyone at Dominican until you visit the IT Department in the library and request to be removed from the SPAMMER list.
