The University of Texas at Austin is now offering all 450,000 of its alumni a free lifetime email account. Named UTmail and powered by Google, it was rolled out to 35,000 current students earlier this year, and were proud to join the Texas Exes in extending this service to alumni. There are three good reasons to switch to UTmail:

To show your UT pride. UTmail provides each alumnus with a free address.
25 gigabytes of storage enough to accommodate about 500,000 average emails.
Better privacy. UTmail will provide greater privacy than standard Gmail accounts because UTs contract with Google is more restrictive regarding commercial data mining.
