I need to change my Electronic Directory entry's email address.
The shortened address your_NetID@illinois.edu is an alias, or alternative name, for your real email account listed in the Electronic Directory. This account is where your email messages are ultimately delivered. Be sure to replace your current email address with another valid email address . Do not enter firstname.lastname@example.org as your email address because your email messages will have no account in which to be delivered.
