ProTip: If you're in school and you're given an email address (here, .edu domain emails are common), don't use it for things which will require a long-term access
Or for anything your school disagrees with or want to keep from the prying eyes of the administration and IT. Policies/Laws mean little if the capability exists
Once you graduate, or leave through another means, you may loss access to your email and any other account registered with it, if you can't change it later
what I don't understand is in previous decade some employers might allow you (within reason) to make and receive personal phone calls at your desk; but at the same time you clearly wouldn't expect to keep the same phone number after you have left the job - why would that be any different for email addresses?
@vfrmedia @cypnk A few weeks ago, I had an automated reply saying along the lines of “I have decided to change my career path and won't be receiving email at this address anymore. If you want to contact someone from this organization, please reach out to XXX at XXXX. You want to contact me, you can write at XXXX”. I guess that is a solution for a time.
