Changing the way PACE handles email

This entry was posted by on Friday, 15 January, 2016 at

Greetings!

In order to help ensure the reliability of email communications from PACE, we will be changing how we deliver mail effective Wednesday, January 20. (next week!) From this time forward, PACE will use only the officially published email addresses as defined in the Georgia Tech Directory.

This is a needed change, as we have many, many messages that we have been unable to deliver due to outdated or incorrect destinations.

The easiest way to determine your official email address is to visit http://directory.gatech.edu and enter your name. If you wish to change your official email address, visit http://passport.gatech.edu.

In particular, this change will affect the address which is subscribed to PACE related email lists (i.e. pace-availability and such) as well as job status emails generated automatically from the schedulers.

For the technically savvy, we will be changing our mail servers to lookup addresses from GTED. We will no longer use the contents of a users ~/.forward file.

p.s. Users of the Tardis cluster do not have entires in the Georgia Tech directory, this change does not apply to you.
