What is an email alias?
Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions faculty and staff generally receive emails using their JHED ID followed by @jhu.edu or @jhmi.edu. Email aliases are addresses that allow you to forward emails from one mail account to another. They are often used as a replacement for long or difficult to remember addresses.

1. Within the myJH Portal, click the JHED icon.
2. Within myProfile, click the Email Alias link.
3. Read the statement and click the I Accept This Policy button.
