4. When we don't have an Oxford address

There are certain situations where we don't have an email address in the .ox.ac.uk domain to be able to set on the account.
  • from non-maintained depts where that dept does not issue an email address eg Computer Sciences don't issue addresses for new visitors
  • from OUP
  • where there is no mail routing set up for whatever reason eg retired/ nomail
The default in this case is username@nexus. This is not something we want to perpetuate and we will be looking at ways to remove these accounts by detaching mailboxes and setting the account status to 'User' rather than 'UserMailbox' or 'MailUser' , or for active users, or negotiating with the dept to get an address assigned.
