Introduction

When you join the University a record in the lookup directory is created containing your name, CRSiD and email address.  As a default it is assumed that you are using a crsid@cam.ac.uk email address. Many people at the Clinical School are using different email addresses and in order to receive official University email messages you should have the correct address in your lookup directory entry.

You can choose to send your @cam mail to any valid email address. You should only redirect your email to another valid University address.  If you choose to send your @cam mail to a system outside the University then you may experience problems getting help if something goes wrong.  You may also be inappropriately exposing internal communications to external systems.

Not setting the delivery arrangements for your @cam address may result in emails never being received or sitting in another mailbox that you do not commonly check. We therefore recommend that you set the destination mailbox for your @cam address to the mailbox that you most commonly use. This can be done in lookup http://www.lookup.cam.ac.uk/self .  

The @cam delivery address is a 'private attribute', visible only to you (and the Lookup data administrators) and therefore changeable only by you.

Instructions

View your current @cam arrangements

Go to your personal page on Lookup - http://www.lookup.cam.ac.uk/self.

  • The Email address field is a public list of addresses for other people to contact you and normally includes your @cam or @medschl address
  • The @cam delivery address field specifies where messages sent to your @cam address will be delivered

The Edit button allows you to change, add and remove these settings, as described below

Change your @cam delivery arrangements to go to an @medschl address

Go to your personal page on Lookup - http://www.lookup.cam.ac.uk/self.

  • Select the 'Edit' button towards the bottom of the page
  • Scroll down to @cam delivery address
  • In the 'Value' drop down select 'Other' and then in the field enter the desired email address. For example, if you want your mail delivered to your medschl account type in 'CRSiD'@medschl.cam.ac.uk. Make sure you enter the address correctly as Lookup does not check to see whether what you have entered is a valid address.
