Student ECNET Account Deactivation Policy

The ECnet accounts and Pages folders of former students are maintained on Emerson's servers for a minimum period of one year after the last semester in which those students were registered. After that point, accounts are subject to deletion; all ECmail and Pages folders of former students are permanently removed and it is not possible to recover deleted email or Pages documents. Students who fall into this category are notified by email several times to allow them to prepare for this change.

If you have been notified that your ECnet account will be deleted, and you are still enrolled at Emerson or know of any other reason why your ECnet account and Pages folder should not be deleted, contact the IT Help Desk immediately by emailing
