Q. For my IWU email address, my last name is cutoff. Is there a way to change this?

We have a standard format for ALL IWU email accounts: the first letter of your first name followed by the first 7 letters of your last name (there may be a number at the end if someone else has the same first initial & last name). Therefore, if your last name exceeds the 7 letter limit, your email address cannot be altered. However, when you send out emails, your full name will appear in the recipient's inbox rather than your email address.
