Notes on Using Email
All official communications from Simmons will be sent to your Simmons email account. If you usually use any other email account, you should forward your Simmons email to your non-Simmons account so that you do not miss these communications.
Web browsing and email are the two of the most common routes by which computers and their users are exposed to viruses, phishing, and other questionable electronic activity.
