The Quick Update form is a fast and easy way to change the email address that your LEAF email (@ivey.ca) address forwards mail to.
The email address you have listed here is used to forward mail sent to your Ivey LEAF account. For example, if your Ivey LEAF address is firstname.lastname@example.org, Ivey's email system looks up where to send an email that is sent to that address, and forwards it on.
No, classmates in the Alumni Portal can see your Forwarding email. The only email address that anyone in the Ivey community can see is your Ivey LEAF address. Only Ivey Alumni Relations and Help Desk staff can see your Forwarding email address.
LEAF stands for Lifelong Email Address Forwarding. The School has assigned you an email address, one that can be used forever. It is not a mailbox at Ivey, but an email forwarding service.
It is used to make it easy for fellow alumni to contact you without having to divulge your email address. Classmates send emails to your LEAF account, and you respond to them from your forwarding email address, but the LEAF address is the only one displayed.
The LEAF system will forward messages sent to your Ivey address to any email account you designate, as long as that email account is active. For example, you can designate your home email account (Hotmail, Sympatico, Gmail, etc.) or your work email account.
Typically, unless there are people from your class with nearly identical names, the address will take the following format: (FirstInitialLastName.DegreeYear@ivey.ca) Using this format, John Doe, MBA 1989, would be: email@example.com.
To make it consistent, your Alumni Portal User Name followed by @ivey.ca is your LEAF email address.
Check in the Email tab to see which email account receives your forwarded mail from your Ivey LEAF account. If there is no forwarding email address listed, add one.
If you choose to not provide or remove a Forwarding email address, you will not receive any of the emails that are sent to your LEAF email address. This includes information that is sent from the Dean, Alumni Relations, the School, Alumni Chapters, or your classmates.
LEAF at Ivey works like the post office — in order to receive mail, you must let the 'post office' know where you are. Register your email account on the Alumni Portal or eZone. If you move, you must let the 'post office' know your new email address, and your email will continue to be forwarded.
We suggest that you have your LEAF email forward to a home email address, like those provided through your Internet Service Provider (e.g. Rogers, Sympatico, etc.), or through free accounts, such as Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo, or Google. If you require assistance with your forwarding email or LEAF mail address, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more help.
