Virtual Email Domain
The Virtual Email Domain Service is offered by UW Information Technology to UW units that need to have their own email domain without having to operate their own email systems. The service allows a mapping of email addresses such that email to <user>@domain and <list>@domain will be routed onwards.
UW Information Technology maintains the servers that route the mail, but the unit must provide the technical expertise to maintain email routing configuration files.
Obtaining (registering and maintaining) the domain name is the unit's responsibility. (Contact email@example.com for information and assistance in registering a washington.edu domain.)
