Emails and announcements that instructors send through Blackboard are automatically directed to your Stony Brook University email address.  It is your responsibility to make sure that you read these emails as they contain important information regarding your courses.  For most students, your official University email account is Google Apps for Education but you may verify your official Electronic Post Office (EPO) address

If you choose to forward your official University email to a personal email account, the University will not be responsible for any messages marked as undeliverable.  You can set up email forwarding using these DoIT-provided instructions.
