Your Retiree Mailbox

Mailbox Content

Your work mailbox content, including mail, appointments, tasks, notes, proxy access, resource mailbox ownership, and address books, will not transfer to your retiree mailbox.

The Helpdesk will be glad to help you retrieve emails and addresses and forward email to a different mailbox. Please allow sufficient time for this.

Your Work Mailbox Will be Deleted

Your work mailbox will be available for 210 days after retirement, after which it will be deleted unless you join the NIU Annuitants Association.
