The IEEE offers a personal email alias service with free virus scanning. IEEE members can register or update a personal alias of their choice (subject to availability and on a "first come, first serve" basis). Messages addressed to the email@example.com will automatically be forwarded to a real Internet email address. Some advantages of having a personal IEEE email alias are:
An email address, which is independent of your service provider or employer;
- Only one place to make changes to your e-mail address;
- IEEE aliases are usually much easier to remember and simpler to use than the real address;
- An E-Mail address that associates you with the IEEE.
