Discontinuation of Student Computer Science Email sign now

On May 5th the UMass Lowell Computer Science Department administration sent out a notice to all computer science students that they will be discontinuing computer science email accounts as of June 22nd 2009. This includes all graduate and undergraduate email addresses that use @cs.uml.edu as the email routing domain. Details of this discontinuation of service to the students can be found at http://www.cs.uml.edu/email-changes.pdf

We, the students of this department, would like to respectfully request that the administration reconsider this decision and allow the students to have a voice in how this transition is made. Specifically, students who have established their professional identity using the department's domain would like to be able to retain their accounts.

We respect the need for centralizing services and resources in the university to minimize cost, but we would like to voice several alternatives to a complete discontinuation of computer science unix email services to students.
