Syracuse University will begin forcing annual password changes for all SU NetID users on November 3, 2014. This includes all Employees of SUNY ESF.

To get ready for this and the notifications that all users will receive telling them that they need to change their password, ESF employees need to check and update their SU email forwarding settings. This applies to everyone, even if you do not use or have SU email. The reason for checking/changing this value is to assure that all users receive a timely reminder to change their password before their SU NetID is disabled for inaction.

Please see the FAQ section at the bottom of this page for answers to some common question about this process.

Before you begin: If you do not have a valid SU NetID and password already, please visit SU's NetID Management page to Activate/update yours today. You can also use the NetID Management page to help if you have forgotten your SU NetID or NetID password.

Question: When your SU NetID password expires, at what email address do you want to be notified?

Please choose Option 1 or 2 below to answer this question:

Option 1: Check/change/set your SU email forwarding setting yourself: 

  • Go to the following Web page: https://its.syr.edu/netid
  • Click: Manage your NetID
  • Enter your SU NetID and password and click Submit.
  • Click: Change your email delivery. If this link is not present on the Web page, please use Option 2 below.
  • This page will tell you where messages sent to your SU NetID@syr.edu are being forwarded. If the stated address is not correct, change it by entering a new forwarding address and then click Submit. If the stated address is correct, there is nothing more to do and you can close your Web browser.

    Frequently asked questions regarding SU email forwarding:

    Q: What is an SU NetID?
    A:
    An SU NetID is a Syracuse University username issued to all Faculty/Staff/Students at ESF and SU. It is a University-wide key to information and services.

    Q: What is an SU NetID used for?
    A: An SU NetID is used to gain access to all systems at SU and many at ESF. Some of these systems include BlackBoard, MySlice, Evergreen/AirOrangeX wireless, SU email, and all public/lab/library/classroom PCs at ESF and SU.

    Q: Does this apply to ESF students?
    A: No. Students will automatically receive SU notifications at the correct address because their primary email is already NetID@syr.edu.

    Q: My primary email address is NetID@syr.edu and not NetID@esf.edu. How does this apply to me?
    A: There are still a handful of employees on campus whose primary email is NetID@syr.edu. As with ESF students, these employees will automatically receive SU notifications at the correct address because their primary email is already NetID@syr.edu.

    Q: Why can’t I change the email routing setting for myself?
    A: You usually can. If the link needed to make this change for yourself does not appear, it means your mail forwarding setting is set to NetID@ad.syr.edu. To SU, this means that you probably have an SU employee mailbox. If you have not checked this mailbox in a while, you can do so by logging in to the following Web page using your SU NetID: https://exchange.syr.edu. You should check this periodically if you intend to keep it along with your ESF employee email.

    Q: I do not have/use SU email but cannot set my SU email forwarding. What can I do?
    A: See option 2 above. Also, you may have SU email and not know it. We can check that for you also.

    Q: Why doesn't CNS just do this for me?
    A: CNS does not know if you have/use SU email. We also do not know where you might want notifications sent if you do have both ESF and SU email.

    Q: Will I receive my first password change notification right on November 3rd?
    A: Probably not. SU will stagger the first round of forced password change notifications over a period of about 7 months. The first notifications will go out on November 3rd and the last notification for the first year will go out some time in May, prior to the end of the spring 2015 semester.

    Q: What happens if I don't change my SU NetID password when notified to do so?
    A: If you do not change your SU password within 30 days of receiving a notification, your NetID will be disabled and you will lose access to: Evergreen wireless, SU email, all public/lab/classroom PCs on campus, MySlice, and other ESF and SU systems.
