Background information

Undergraduate students in Math or CS have one mailbox as described in

As hinted at above, student.math/student.cs mail redirection "remembers" a student's forwarding configuration and a student who changes from CS to Math, or vice versa, must request the consultants change their mailbox.

Normal Procedure

The Math Faculty Computing Consultants in MC3017 can make the change.

Finding Out How To Do It

Whoever is to make the change needs to be logged into student.math or student.cs, as either super-user or a user in group "accounts" to effect the change. To find out how to do the change, read the man page "man 7 student-math-merge-config" on one of those systems. Remember that configuration files such as those mentioned are usually RCS'd. Beware that if only one user usually changes the file, they may have left it checked out.

If you're not comfortable following this description of how to determine the procedure, you won't be comfortable with the procedure itself.
