What is the difference between and addresses?

The Fullname Address <firstname.lastname> is your official e-mail address for University business purposes.

The Connect Address <ucsbnetid> is what you use to log into Connect. Although this is a deliverable email address, most individuals opt to use their fullname address.

Some individuals may optionally also have a Departmental Address <userid>@<dept>, although these are considered a legacy service that we provide for continuity of email delivery.

Each of these addresses delivers to the same Connect Inbox.
