Commercial email in NUS email inboxes
Every single student at the National University of Singapore is assigned a unique NUS email address when they matriculate. With these email addresses, students are able to communicate with lecturers and fellow classmates, as well as receive important educational and administrative information.
However, some students are not only receiving emails from lecturers, classmates or NUS departments.
Last September, NUS undergraduate Chua Sze Hwei, 22, received a promotional email from BigDeal.SG, a company which was started by three NUS alumni. The company is a social buying site that works on the basis of wholesale discounts. A deal that is offered on the website will only be honoured when it is purchased by a minimum number of people.
If the Internet is the source of all information, computers are the doorways to it.And at Computer Centre (as The Matrix would say), we can show you the door, but you’re the one who has to walk through it.
But to make things a little easier for you, we’ve got a plan to make NUSmail work on any computer, anywhere.That’s why we’ve introduced WebMail.All you need is a web browser and working Internet connection, and NUSmail is at your fingertips, whichever part of the world you’re in.
And if Internet connectivity is poor, just log on to the Basic version of NUSmail, which cuts down greatly on the bandwidth required.

What is a FriendlyMail?NUS Email
A FriendlyMail is an alternate email address that you can apply for at no additional charges. It will be associated to the same mailbox as your default email address (eg. [email protected], [email protected] for staff, [email protected], [email protected] for students) that was issued to you when you first became a part of the NUS community.
Important: It is not necessary to set email redirection or auto-forwarding from your default email address to your FriendlyMail since both email addresses belong to the same mailbox.
How can I check what is my current FriendlyMail address?
After you have applied for a FriendlyMail, messages sent to either your default email address or FriendlyMail will be delivered to your mailbox.
If you change your FriendlyMail, however, all mails sent to the old FriendlyMail will no longer be delivered to you.
What email address would the recipients see?
They will now see your new FriendlyMail address.
