Email Addresses - U of M vs WRHA vs Private/external
This page tries to make sense of which emails people are using, how to best use them in combination, etc.
Department employees often have two email addresses, a U of M and a WRHA one. Additionally, many prefer to use their personal address instead. There have been cases where the holder has been unaware of the existence of some of the accounts.
This leads to problems keeping track of contact information, and also exposes us to a risk when information particular to one organization ends up on the servers of another, which doesn't always have the same interest.
Contacted U of M, and it's against their policy to forward or integrate U of M emails to WRHA addresses. I can't remember if I got a policy link for this, and my Outlook search is crashing right now, so will need to get back to this. User:Ttenbergen 18:27, 21 March 2018 (CDT)
I imagine WRHA has a similar policy, but don't have details. Tom, what do you know?
Yet, some accounts may be forwarded on the server side to external, private accounts already. Not naming names here. User:Ttenbergen 18:35, 21 March 2018 (CDT)
Marie Butler's (Director of medical staff recruitment) group is setting up email accounts for all physicians in manitoba. They are set up as aliases, and apparently will eventually be mandated to be checked by the college. These are essentially aliases to eHealth accounts, but I don't necessarily understand if that means every physician in the province now has an eHealth account. (Doesn't look like it, eg my family doc is not in address book; maybe this was just about WRHA docs?). Emailed Marie Butler for clarification. User:Ttenbergen 18:27, 21 March 2018 (CDT)
These emails have apparently also been set up for all residents for the last several years, but they are not currently set up for undergrad students. They are looking at it for 3-4th year students.
- Accessing WRHA email from a personal cell phone
- setting up accounts for external servers in MS Outlook
- forwarding (works operationally, but against policy)
