Most tertiary institutes mandates that within 30 days of graduation, all student email accounts will be deleted to make space for the incoming batch. Among all the issues of moving out of the dorms, catching up with friends and clearing the last credits, backing up emails seems low on priorities.
Student emails are important as it is used for official matters (i.e. job applications, internships, grades, etc) and unofficial personal matters. With Dropmyemail, it will be a breeze to back up these electronic communications. John Fearon, CEO of Dropmyemail, believes that beyond the content, emails serve as a timeline of one’s best time in life.
“Emails are very important in keeping track of your life and your last carefree years of life will have been spent during in University.”
For schools, it is an exercise in cash conservation. Just imagine, an average university with 8,000 fresh graduates worldwide, each with an average email inbox of 2GB, would mean 16TB of storage is required. That would be a unnecessary sum for any university to pay for students who are about to leave them.
Students are also likely to ignore their emails – much to their own detriment. Lecture notes from business courses will come in handy one day and key contacts from networking sessions are a few things that student emails are full of. Migrating them one by one consumes time, a commodity graduates have little of.
In light of these situations, Dropmyemail provides a simple service to back up emails and be able to migrate emails from one provider to another. It’s a free and simple two-click signup process to get you going. Add the mail accounts to back emails or migrate emails.
Upon signing up, all users get 0.5GB free and they can increase their free storage space to 2GB by following the guided tour and simply by referring friends. After that, if more space is required, Pro accounts of 5BG and 10GB are available at low prices ($9.99USD and $19.99USD respectively)
As tertiary institutes around the world say goodbye to their latest graduation class, mortarboards will be tossed, tears will be shed and nostalgic moments will prevail. Everyone gets swept up in the occasion that closes the book on growing up and opens the door to being a grown up. Plenty will be forgiven and forgotten but it is Fearon’s and Dropmyemail’
