Lifetime of your email address¶
The access to your computer account as well as to your mailbox is dependant to your administrative situation : at the end of your employment contract, your file will expire in the IT directory of Polytechnique (XAJAM). One month before the expiration date, you will be notified by email. Of course, if you receive this email while your functions in the school are not ending, you should quickly contact the CMAP administrative team.
The school no longer offers Polytechnique addresses for life. But, since the rule has recently changed, a precedence clause applies and there are therefore two cases :
If you arrived at the school BEFORE November 15, 2018 you can still claim a lifetime address. To do so, at any time BUT BEFORE YOUR ACCOUNT EXPIRES, you can log on to https://mail.polytechnique.fr , with your Polytechnique credentials and enter a personal address in the "Email Forwarding" section.
If you arrived after this date, you will not be able to benefit from the lifetime redirection. However, you can contact us (email@example.com) to obtain a redirection of your @cmap.polytechnique.fr address (with no guarantee of duration).
Please note that in any case, two months after the expiration date of your account in the XAJAM directory, your physical mailboxes will be destroyed.
