UC Berkeley provides Berkeley Haas alumni with a free @berkeley.edu email account.
This account will manage your Berkeley Haas branded alumni addresses, or aliases:
Note: This service was previously known as “email forwarding”. Once you claim your @berkeley.edu email account, you can access your @berkeley.edu and your Berkeley Haas email aliases listed above by logging into: bmail.berkeley.edu with your CalNet ID and Passphrase.
If you choose not to claim, your email address(es) and files will be removed from bMail after your student grace period has ended. After this period lapses yyou will be able to claim an @berkeley and Haas email address, but your attachments, emails, and files may be deleted.
No settings will change in your email client. However, you will need to log back into @cal and set your new @berkeley.edu email (which will include your Berkeley Haas alias addresses to forward to your personal email of choice
Some users created a personal Google Account using their alumni forwarding email address. Therefore, when you claim your @berkeley email Google sees this as a conflicting account. When you next sign in to your personal Google Account, you’ll be asked to resolve this conflicting account by creating a new google account OR adding to an account you already have. You will not be able to use your @berkeley as the new account. Click here for more information
You can change your CalNet ID using the tool here.. Find instructions online here. After you change your CalNet ID, email the bConnected team at [email protected] (link sends e-mail) and request that they change your bMail address to match your new CalNet ID. Also, be aware that you are only allowed to change your ID one time, so we strongly advise you select something you intend to keep for the rest of your time with UC Berkeley.
Yes, some users who claim will notice the display name is showing information (nicknames, middle initials, etc.) that they would like to update. Note: It may take 24-48 hours for the name changes to appear in bConnected. Go here to the “Alums” section for instructions
*Please note: student, faculty, and staff Google accounts are included in the global Google Directory by default. You can alter that setting in the global Google Directory at: https://mybconnected.berkeley.edu under Account -> “contact display preference” menu.
