While the use of your wmich.edu email account for personal emails is permitted, it is recommended you use a separate, non-WMU, email account for personal emails. If you elect to use your wmich.edu email account for personal use, WMU asks that you keep these emails separate from University business. Creating a folder named "Personal" is recommended and is a great way to keep your personal and University data separate.
Separation from the University
Upon retirement, all emails containing University business should be transferred to the employee's supervisor. Once transferred, emails containing University business should be removed from the email account of the retiree.
Voluntary or involuntary employment termination
Once employment at the university has been terminated, whether voluntary or involuntary, employee access to email is revoked. This is a compelling reason to use a non-WMU email account for personal emails.
