PantherMail student email accounts and addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org) are deactivated for students who have not enrolled in a course at Georgia State University in two years or more, in accordance with the university's Computer Accounts Policy.
Account holders whose accounts will be deactivated are sent a deactivation notice by email prior to account deactivation. Deactivation means that after the deadline:
- You will not be able to access your PantherMail account or use your student email address to send, receive or forward email.
- Your PantherMail account content will be deleted.
Account holders should do the following before the date listed in their deactivation notice:
1 Obtain an alternate email account.
You can obtain a personal Microsoft account online in order to have some of the same features that were available from your student email account.
2 Let your contacts know that your email address will change.
Send any contacts that use your student email address a note to update their address books with your new email address.
3 Set Up the Outlook desktop client with your student email.
If you would like to migrate your student email to your new account, prepare by setting up the Outlook desktop client.
4 Export your email messages.
Use the Outlook desktop client to follow these directions to export your email messages from a PantherMail account to another Microsoft outlook.com account.
5 Change the email account to which services are linked.
Remember to change the email account associated with any subscription services, such as Hotmail Plus or Xbox Live, that currently direct information to your student email account. Do this for any services or websites for which password retrieval or billing is linked to your student email account.
