Your Brown email is your CS email. The CS Department offers a mail forwarding service for addresses of the form
Where shortID is your Brown short ID (aka logname or username). By default, this address forwards to your regular Brown email address. You can change that forwarding address to anything you like.
Note that we do not provide alternate CS addresses to CS users - your address must be your University-issued short ID.
Your CS address does not expire, ever.
Change your email forwarding address
At https://cs.brown.edu/account/ you will have the opportunity to change your preferred email address as well as a few other personal items. You should login to that page using your ldap password.
If you are already logged into the website, look for the profile icon in the lower right hand corner of the website (upper right on the home page).
The Department runs its own email discussion lists.
Beware of Phishing
Phishing emails are bogus emails that try to trick you into giving away your personal info. Read the Phishing Primer provided by CIS IT service center.
