Manage your emails
As a student of the Ecole polytechnique, you get an e-mail address firstname.lastname [at] polytechnique.edu for life. Be careful, this address does not correspond to a definitive mail store.
Emails sended to firstname.lastname [at] polytechnique.edu are first analyzed (antivirus/antispam) by outgoing mail server* and then delivered to an internal mailbox (firstname.lastname [at] zimbra.polytechnique.fr), on the incoming mail server**. Only @polytechnique.edu address should be passed to your contacts.
If needed, you can also forward a copy of your e-mails to a private address (for example, firstname.lastname [at] gmail.com). Log into https://webmail.polytechnique.fr, select Preferences \Mail \Receiving Mails and set your personal email address in the textbox Forward a copy to:
When you leave the school, your zimbra's account expires but your mail forwarding rule is kept and set on outgoing mail server. The only thing that changes is your e-mails are no longer stored inside the school.
You can change at any time the address pointed to by firstname.lastname [at] polytechnique.edu through: https://mail.polytechnique.edu. Due to technical constraints, the login/password used on this website is different from your LDAP login/password.
