Departing Employee - FAQ


Why can't I keep a copy of all my emails when I leave work?

  • Work-related email messages, attachments and other records stored on Dartmouth College systems are the property of Dartmouth College. These records should not be forwarded or duplicated to personal email accounts or non-Dartmouth systems such as hard-drives or personal cloud-based storage. Please refer to Email Policy When Leaving Dartmouth for policy guidance.

Can I have an Out of Office message up for several months after I leave so I can direct people to write to my successor?

  • You can keep an Out of Office message on your Dartmouth email account up to 30 days after your last day of employment, while your account is still active.  After the 30 days email messages sent to your Dartmouth email address will be undeliverable.
