email domain to be retired on Dec. 14

The email domain will be permanently retired on Dec. 14. After that time, mail to addresses will no longer be forwarded to addresses and will be returned to the sender as undeliverable.

When we began working with our stakeholders to change our name to Augusta University and AU Health in 2015, it became clear very early that the implications of changes to our email domain were particularly sensitive. Our email addresses are important to much of the work we do every day. As a result, we made a number of decisions that were designed to ease the transition to the new domain.

One of the principal decisions was to avoid a hard transition between the old domain and our new domain. It was our hope that this period of overlap would allow ample time to communicate to all relevant parties that our email addresses had changed. The time has now come to retire the domain.

Our email domain will be permanently retired on Dec. 14. After that time, mail to addresses will no longer be forwarded to addresses – instead, it will be returned to the sender as undeliverable.

In June 2017, we began adding a red letter notice at the top of all incoming email that was still addressed to addresses. If you are still receiving important correspondence bearing that notice, please notify those senders of your new email address right away.

Thank you for your careful attention to this matter as we officially retire our old domain name and fully embrace our new one. Please contact us at either of the telephone numbers below if you have questions or need assistance.
