There are 3 kinds of email addresses you may come across at Lone Star College.
Student email addresses are formatted as: [myLoneStar username]@my.LoneStar.edu. So, for example, a student named John Smith with the username johsmith1 would have the email address: johsmith1@my.LoneStar.edu.
You can access your email by signing in to myLoneStar. There will be a preview of your inbox in the center of the homepage of your Student view as well as a link to Student Email in the Quick Links box on the left.
Students also have an email address inside D2L, e.g. johsmith1@D2L.LoneStar.edu. This is only meant to be used for communication inside of D2L; this is not your primary, official email account.
You can easily distinguish student email addresses from employees because they're formatted differently. John Smith the employee might have an email address like John.X.Smith@LoneStar.edu. These can be looked up in the Contact Directory.
