Functional Email Accounts

A functional email account is defined as an email account created for and used by an entity, rather than an individual. Example of functional email accounts include mydepartmentname@gallaudet.edu.

Functional email accounts is useful when more than one person needs access to an email account. For instance, mydepartmentname@gallaudet.edu is monitored by several employees in that department’s office, all of whom respond to email inquiries.

Please contact the Help Desk to request for functional email accounts. Requests must include a justification and the name of a contact person.

Functional email account users are expected to abide by all university policies for use of computer resources, and those specific to email as well. The contact person is responsible for all activity on the account.
