Cornell Optional Email Alias
The Cornell Optional Email Alias (COEA) service allows eligible individuals to create a Cornell email address based on their name. (Faculty, staff, and trustees are eligible.) That new address will take the form of an alias plus "@cornell.edu" For example, firstname.lastname@example.org
An Alias does not replace your NetID or your NetID@cornell.edu address.
Choosing an Alias is completely voluntary. If you don’t want one, you don’t need to do anything.
