Hence, most schools give you a user@alumni.school.edu acount. However, at Davis, you have to buy your way into the alumni association to get such an address. However even schools as humble as UC Riverside give complimentary alumni addresses. I inquired about this once, and the UC Davis alumni association essentially replied that they really didn't care.
