Step By Step Directions to Start Using Eagle MailUpon your enrollment at the university, you will be sent a letter via postal mail that will outline your computer account names and your initial password. Note: The format of Eagle Mail e-mail addresses is F.M.Lastname@eagle.clarion.edu (where F is first initial, M is middle initial). A numeric suffix will be added to the end of Lastname if there are identical names. For example, J.Q.User@eagle.clarion.edu, J.Q.email@example.com. Note: The password is case sensitive; enter it exactly as it appears in the letter. Your eagle mail address is not case sensitive.
