A recent policy change at NC State means that students will no longer keep their email address indefinitely, and instead a new account will be created at upon graduation. They will keep their for a period of time (I want to say 6 months?), then their is removed.

Only graduated students are eligible to receive an account at this new domain, so it won't affect the free user spam if the registration rules allow the use of the domain. It would just mean that anyone who didn't create a TWW account until after graduation still has the option to do so, even though they don't get to keep their account anymore.

Also, as a heads up, I believe that all graduated students going back to 2010 will be migrating away from to, so there may be a bunch of users who need to switch email addresses in the near future.

Mostly just wanted to put the information out there, since I didn't see any recent discussion of the new email stuff, just older references to the (now defunct) forwarding service that used to use the domain.

Lastly, the and domains are no longer used except by some legacy accounts, which are guaranteed to also have an email, so maintaining support for those domains for user signups probably doesn't make sense anymore.

- Graduated students now get and their goes away
- All graduated students going back to 2010 will be switching to in batches
- Maybe allow emails for free accounts?
- eos/unity domains aren't used anymore, probably not useful for registration
