Email and mailbox naming
I hope you remember your mailbox name. But what about someone you give it to? What impression do they have of you such as an employer, a university?
<name>Full date-of-birth is wrong – see IT-Club video Staying Safe online.
<name>Day/month – not great, but ok – but it is not easy for someone to remember.
You need an easy to remember mailbox name and set the alias to a name that you are known by.
Mailbox name must be unique, alias does not have to be unique.
Examples of Bad, ok, Good
chansophea22042001 – discloses your full date of birth
sophea222222 – difficult to remember 6 2’s
809577436bbb – who will remember this?
sophea123456chan – too complex, use a long password to be secure
seek2kill – what would an employer think of you?
chansophea2204 – partial date of birth, but not easy for someone to remember
chansophea22 – easy to remember
sophea123 – is ok if the alias is set to Chan Sophea or Sophea Chan
Sopheachan100 – easy to remember by another person
