The primary purpose of the Alumni Email Service is to provide the Alumni of the Institute with an official lifelong email id associated with the IIT Kharagpur name. The email account may not be used for mail storage. All emails received at the Alumni Email account shall be forwarded to a pre-specified primary email address (gmail, yahoo, hotmail etc.) of the user automatically. The user may also use this id for sending mails either by directly logging in to his/her alumni mail account, or by suitably configuring his/her primary mail account (gmail, yahoo, hotmail etc.) to use the alumni mail id from their primary email account.
Each email id will be provided with 200 MB of storage for short term needs. The user is responsible for ensuring that the quota is not exceeded if he/she decides to use the storage. The user is also responsible for forwarding and/or backing up any important mails in his/her account and IIT Kharagpur is not liable for any loss of data arising out of system failures or any other reason.
