Can I forward my e-mails that arrive at my METU user account after I graduate?
In the scope of the Forwarding Service, the e-mail addresses of graduated students in the e100001metu.edu.tr format are left active for a term after graduation (for Spring term graduates till the March of the next year and for Fall graduates till November of the same year) and terminated and directed to an indicated e-mail address forever, at the end of that duration .
For prospective graduate students, a warning message is sent 6 months before, stating that their account will be terminated, followed by a reminding message 1 month before the termination. The students can do the forwarding after the reminding message before the termination or whenever they want after their account is terminated.
The forwarding of the user accounts can be done via https://alumni.cc.metu.edu.tr address by using the central user account and password. Users whose accounts had been terminated and those who forgot their passwords, they have to send a photo of their identity card and their student number together with their preferred forwarding address (allowed file types are: pdf, png, jpeg, gif and maximum file upload size: 2MB ) by filling in IT Support Form.
Note: Please wait 30 minutes to use the forwarding service. After 30 minutes, you should be able to receive e-mails to your forwarding address from your @metu.edu.tr address.
