There are 3 kinds of email addresses you may come across at Lone Star College.

Students:

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.

Employees:

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.
