Department Email Account
Departments requiring an email account (for example, an inbox for website feedback) should submit the Departmental Email Account Request form in the online IT Help Desk service request system.
The form requires an account name, the purpose of the account and the names of the administrator and back-up administrator.
ECU email content automatically moves to alumni email after graduation. OneDrive becomes a personal account, and Office downloads to your computer no longer work. Your documents remain intact.
Your email address changes to PirateID@ecualumni.ecu.edu. To open the inbox, please log in to mymail.ecu.edu.
NOTE: Alumni email addresses created before February 2014 are PirateID@alumni.ecu.edu. Please login to mymail.ecu.edu.
Passphrase management for both types of alumni account is through the Passphrase Maintenance website.
Legacy Alumni Email
Alumni email addresses created before February 2014 are PirateID@alumni.ecu.edu. Please login at http://mymail.ecu.edu.
