This is a summary of how to find email addresses for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff at various colleges and universities. It is available on the World-Wide Web (via browsers such as Mosaic or lynx) at <URL:http://www.cs.queensu.ca/FAQs/email/college.html> A chronological list of changes is available at <URL:http://www.cs.queensu.ca/FAQs/email/new.html> If your university is not listed, send me a detailed description of how to find email addresses there, in a format similar to what I have here, and I'll add it to this list. Please mail ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, SUGGESTIONS, and OTHER INFORMATION to me at dalamb@spamcop.net. I will *not* answer requests for help finding a specific address; if the school is not listed in this posting, I do not have any information about the site. For general information about finding e-mail addresses, check the FAQ on How to find people's E-mail addresses at <URL:http://www.cs.queensu.ca/FAQs/email/finding.html>, posted regularly to soc.net-people and comp.mail.misc. An updated version of this list is posted every once in a while to the newsgroups soc.college, soc.net-people and news.answers. The version date for this list is located at the top of the file. The list is also available via anonymous ftp from ftp.cs.queensu.ca in directory pub/dalamb/email as the files faq1.txt, ..., faqN.txt, where N is the current number of parts. You can get all the FAQs posted to soc.college by sending a message to "mail- server@rtfm.mit.edu" whose body contains send usenet/soc.college/* We present detailed information on locating the email addresses of students, faculty and staff at various universities. As of Feb 1993 I've started to tag entries with the date I last changed them, so you have some clue as to how stale the information might be. Disclaimer: Most universities have restrictions on the uses of directory information. So don't use this info for commercial purposes or whatnot without securing permission from the individual colleges and universities. ****************************************************************************** * College Indexes on the Web * ****************************************************************************** The following items are collections of links to university home pages. * American College and University Admissions Offices (USA) at <URL:http://www.novakint.com/colleges/>. * American Colleges and Universities by State (USA) at <URL:http://www.univsource.com/region.htm>. * American Community Colleges (USA Only) at <URL:http://www.community- college.org>. * American Universities (USA only) at <URL:http://www.clas.ufl.edu/CLAS/american-universities.html>. * Canadian Universities (Canada only) at <URL:http://watserv1.uwaterloo.ca/~credmond/univ.html>. * Canadian Universities, Colleges, and Schools (Canada Only) at <URL:http://www.internationaleducationmedia.com/canada/index.htm>. * College and university admission office e-mail addresses (USA) at <URL:http://www.college-scholarships.com/>. * College and university admission office phone numbers (USA) at <URL:http://www.tou.com/host/aegc/>. * College and University Home Pages (Worldwide) at <URL:http://www.mit.edu:8001/people/cdemello/univ.html>. * CollegeNET - Internet Guide to Colleges and Universities (USA and Canada) at <URL:http://www.collegenet.com/>. * CollegeFind - American College Index at <URL:http://www.usmall.com/college/search/index.html>. * Community Colleges (USA only) at <URL:http://www.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu/cc/>. * Current students and alumni (USA only) at <URL:http://www.Campusregistry.com>. * Educational institutions seeking to recruit international students (Worldwide) at <URL:http://www.worldofstudy.com/>. * Finnish Universities at <URL:http://www.cs.hut.fi/finland.html#Universities>. * Historically Black Colleges and Universities (primarily USA) at <URL:http://www.howard.edu/HBCU-Gateway/>. * International Education (18 countries) at <URL:http://www.internationaleducationmedia.com/>. * U101 College Search (USA and Canada) at <URL:http://U101.com/>. * UK Academic Sites (UK only; map-based) at <URL:http://www.scit.wlv.ac.uk/ukinfo/uk.map.html>. * University Home Pages (USA only) at <URL:http://isl- garnet.uah.edu/Universities/>. * Student home pages by School at <URL:http://www.student.com/features/homepages/>. ****************************************************************************** * General Information * ****************************************************************************** To avoid repeating long explanations, the entries for individual universities use a generic acronym for user IDs, formed from F's for characters from the front of the first name, M's for characters from the front of the middle name, L's for characters from the front of the last name. Examples are given for two full names: "Mark Kantrowitz" (no middle initial, long last name) and "John C Smith". * Many UNIX sites limit userids to 8 characters, so try the first 8 characters of the last name. [smith or kantrowi] LLLLLLLL or L(8) * If there are two people with the same last name, the first initial (and possibly the middle initial as well) are appended at the front of the name. [jsmith or jcsmith] FLLLLLLL FMLLLLLL or FL(7) FML(6) * Try appending the initials at the end of the name. [smithj or smithjc] LLLLLLLF LLLLLLFM or L(7)F L(6)FM * Try the initials of the users name. [jcs] FML * Some sites allow longer "aliases" for finger and for mailboxes. Aliases might be arbitrary, but some sites allow some form of the user's full name, such as Firstname.Lastname [John.Smith or Mark.Kantrowitz] or Firstname_Lastname. ****************************************************************************** * Email Database * ****************************************************************************** Aalborg University (Aalborg, Dennmark): Changed: Thu Feb 17 2005 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.aau.dk/>.

There are several electronic directories at <URL:http://www.csusm.edu/tools/search.html>, one each for faculty/staff, students, guests, and Web pages. Calvin College (Grand Rapids, MI, USA): Changed: Thu Jun 22 1995 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.calvin.edu/>. Use 'finger name@calvin.edu' (eg firstname or lastname) to find addresses, since userids include parts of student numbers, so are hard to guess. Students: flllllnn (first intitial, first 5 of last name, last 2 digits of student number; except lastnames starting with Dutch prefixes Van Vander Vande etc., where just the v and first 4 letters of second part of lastname. Thus Henk Vander Bos, #123456, becomes hvbos56, Al Shoemaker, #987654, becomes ashoem54) (formerly s0###### where ###### is the student id number) Faculty/staff: xxxx@calvin.edu where "xxxx" is the standard faculty abbrevation, often lastname Cambrian College (Sudbury, ON, Canada): Created: Wed Oct 28 1998 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.cambrianc.on.ca/>. Cambridge University (Cambridge, United Kingdom): Changed: Mon Jul 3 1995 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.cam.ac.uk/>. A central directory of e-mail addresses is available from the Web service. Students: All undergraduates are registered for mail on hermes.cam.ac.uk, but not all use it. Staff and postgraduate students: some on central systems cus.cam.ac.uk or hermes.cam.ac.uk, but many (especially in scientific subjects) are on a variety of departmental systems. Cameron University (Lawton, OK, USA): Created: Sat Oct 25 1997 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.cameron.edu/>. Students: FM(L6)@wolverine.cameron.edu All students are registered for e- mail but accounts are removed after approximately a month into the semester if they have not been accessed. Staff: FirstnameL@cameron.edu. Duplicates may need to add extra letters to last name eg. John Doe - johndo@cameron.edu; John Duhn - johndu@cameron.edu There is a directory of all employees and their e-mail at <URL:http://www.cameron.edu/people/directory/index.html>. It also includes info for students who allow directory information release but does not include their e-mail addresses. Admissions e-mail: admissions@cameron.edu Canadore College (North Bay, Ontario, Canada): Created: Sat Oct 28 1995 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://http://www.canadorec.on.ca/cana-1.htm/>. Faculty and staff: often lllllllf@cdrive.canadorec.on.ca; staff directory at <URL:http://www.canadorec.on.ca/staff.htm> Carleton College (Northfield, MN, USA): Created: Thu Jun 15 1995 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.carleton.edu/>. The most widely used system is carleton.edu, which runs VMS. Student usernames are usually lastnamf, while staff, alum, faculty usernames are flastnam. In cases where two usernames would be identical there is no real pattern as to how a valid username is constructed. The easiest way to find someone is to try fingering what you think their username would be, i.e. smithj@carleton.edu (for the student Jon Smith) or longstop@carleton.edu (for student Pipi Longstocking). Only an exact match will return successful. Other systems include: mathcs.carleton.edu: This system is growing in popularity and currently runs NeXTStep. NeXT-mail can be accepted. physics.carleton.edu: This system runs some sort of UNIX and is generally limited to physics faculty and majors. Carleton University (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada): Changed: Thu Dec 25 1997 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.carleton.ca/>. There is a list of directories at <URL:http://temagami.carleton.ca/cu/dir.html>. Most graduate students and faculty are F(L7)@ccs.carleton.ca; try fingering username@superior.carleton.ca to check. Some faculty/staff can be reached as Firstname_Lastname@carleton.ca. Most undergraduates are [same username as above]@chat.carleton.ca (unfingerable). Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA, USA): Changed: Wed Jul 12 1995 World-Wide Web service at <URL:http://www.cmu.edu/>. Finger @cmu.edu to find people. You can try mailing to Firstname.Lastname@cmu.edu@, but if there are a lot of John Smiths, you'll get a bounce message with a list of all the John Smiths. All undergraduate students and some faculty, staff, and graduate students: Mail sent to Fname.MI.Lname@andrew.cmu.edu works, even if the name was slightly misspelled. As of July 1995 users can also pick arbitrary vanity IDs. Most Andrew login IDs are two initials followed by two characters that will appear random to outsiders, but since you can send mail based on their actual names, this shouldn't matter. Login IDs are arbitrary; to tell the mailer you're supplying an exact ID, not to be pattern-matched with closely matching names, add a + at the end of the name: mkant+@cs.cmu.edu. If you try an ambiguous name, you'll get mail back with a list of matches. In some departments (e.g CS, Robotics) everybody gets a departmental account. In others (e.g. English) very few get them. Departmental addresses include: Chemical Engineering: cheme.cmu.edu Computational Linguistics: lcl.cmu.edu Computer Science Grad: Firstname_Lastname@cs.cmu.edu Electrical and Computer Engineering: ece.cmu.edu English: english.hss.cmu.edu Humanities & Social Sciences: hss.cmu.edu Mathematics: math.cmu.edu Psychology: psy.cmu.edu Robotics Grad: Firstname_Lastname@ri.cmu.edu. Statistics: stat.cmu.edu Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH, USA): Changed: Wed Mar 24 1993 Use 'whois -h whois.cwru.edu' to find usernames. It supports substring and soundex searches. If there is a * beside an address, it has not been activated. po.cwru.edu is the post office. Every student, professor, and staff member has access to email through this machine, as do alumni who activated their accounts while students. (Not everybody activates their account, however.) User ids are of the form fml##, where ## is a number, probably less than 30. The number is omitted if equal to 1. If there's no middle initial, m is an 'x'. skybridge.scl.cwru.edu is the server for the undergraduate Unix lab. The user ids on that machine are the full last name, for the most part. (Mainly Computer Engineering and EE's on this machine.) You can also search the Cleveland Freenet user list for CWRU people by any part of the name; telnet to freenet-in-a.cwru.edu, choose "Visitor", "Explore the system" and at the prompt, "go directory" CS/computer engineering majors may have accounts on the CS cluster; finger any part of the name @alpha.ces.cwru.edu. Userids are usually full last name. EE majors and those in related courses may have accounts on the EE HP/UX cluster; finger @snowhite.eeap.cwru.edu. Userids are usually the first six letters of the last name. Catholic University of America (Washington, DC, USA): Changed: Sun Mar 20 1994 Send mail to username@cua.edu (Internet) or username@cua.bitnet (BITNet). There is no finger service.
