1.5.2: Aliases

For those people whose usernames do not conform to the standard of initial+lastname, there should nevertheless be an alias which directs E-mail from initial+lastname to the correct destination. For example, John Krommes' username is krommes and so his E-mail address is krommes@pppl.gov. However jkrommes@pppl.gov is an alias of krommes@pppl.gov. You can verify the existence of such an alias by using finger:

$ finger jkrommes@pppl.gov
The alias jkrommes expands to John Krommes <krommes@pppl.gov>.

Aliases are set up by a system administrator. If you think the aliases for you are not correct, send E-mail to unixadmin@pppl.gov.
