[For USNAAA LIFE members] USNA Alumni Classmail

Update: 12FEB2017 – From USNAAA

We’re making classmail better! Starting in February, we will begin moving the classmail service over to a new provider. There should be no interruption of service during this migration.

What’s new?

Classmail is now a full email service, not just a forwarding service (It can still forward as well). It’s powered by Google G Suites, just like Gmail is. Your classmail email address will remain the same but now you can log into it and use it just like you use Gmail. You’ll also have access to all the other google services like Google Docs and Google Sheets.

What do you need to do?

Over the next month, you will receive an email from admin@classmail.usna.com that will require you to confirm your forwarding address. All members who want to use classmail will need to take action. Even if you want to continue to forwarding email to the same address, you’ll need to approve the forwarding request that was sent to this address and follow the instructions in that email. A separate email will be sent with login credentials to use the new service as full service email.

If you have any questions, please email admin@classmail.usna.com

You can now receive a distinctive USNA Alumni Association email address that shows you are a Naval Academy alumnus – FREE to Alumni Association LIFE Members!  Lifetime Email Forwarding — CLASSMAIL —It’s FREE!!  Brand yourself as a Naval Academy graduate.  You’ll never have to notify your family, friends and colleagues of a new email address.

Tired of changing your email address when your ISP folds and then having to notify everyone on your email lists? Want another way to show your affinity to the Naval Academy and the last class to have a Plebe Year?  The U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association is pleased to offer you our newest Life Member Benefit – Classmail. Classmail is a lifetime email forwarding service that will allow you to communicate with other members of the Naval Academy alumni community and your family and friends without having to change your personal email address more than once.  As graduates of the Academy we know how often we move all over the world. Classmail offers you the opportunity to only have to come to one place to change your email address.

Lifetime email forwarding allows you, as a lifetime member of the Association, to register for a FREE, permanent alias email. The format of this email address will be name@classyear.usna.com (ex, cwnimitz@1905.usna.com). Email sent to this account will be forwarded to an active email address that you provide to us by entering it yourself through the Alumni Association Website. You can forward to real email addresses anywhere on the Internet.

Here’s the simple process:  Visit www.usna.com and enter the Alumni Only section of the web site.  Login with your USERNAME and PASSWORD (if you’ve never registered, follow the directions on the registration page).  Click on the ‘Update your Profile’ and it will take you to the profile form where you can activate this free service.
