    Here is the notice we will post by the labs.
    

    How do I Verify My Account Status?

      To verify your account status, login to WebAcct.
    

    How do I Get off the Expired List?

      If our records are in error, you may complete an EECS Account Request Form 
      and submit it at 378 Cory before December 17.
     
      Or you can just wait until the start of the next semester, when we will have 
      newer enrollment records, and request your account again. 
    

    What happens to the files in an expired account?

      For class accounts ("cs61a-aa", "ee122-aa", etc), the files will be saved 
      for 1-2 weeks, archived to tape and deleted.  Class account logins are 
      reassigned to new students next semester.
    
      For named accounts ("jdoe", 'cs199-aa', etc), the files will be saved for 
      about a month after the start of the next semester, and the files will be 
      archived to tape before they are deleted.  If the student is eligible again 
      for an account next semester, the account can be renewed.
    
      BEFORE your account expires, you can copy your files from your Windows 
      and UNIX home directories by transferring them to a USB memory stick.
      You could also email them to yourself or use a file transfer program.
    
      AFTER your account expires, you will not be able to copy the files.
    
      For more information, please see
      - How Do I Copy Files Between Computers?
      - http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/pub.cgi?file=file-transfer.help
    

    What happens to email sent to an expired account?

      The files in an expired class account are removed from our disk a 
      week or two after the end of the semester.  The files for an expired 
      named account remain on the disk until about 1 month into the next 
      semester.
    
      BEFORE and AFTER your account expires (as long as the account still exists),
      you can download email from imail.eecs.berkeley.edu, the Instructional IMAP 
      server.  
    
      AFTER your account expires, no new email is accepted here.  
      
      For more information, please see
      - How Do I Manage Email?
      - http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/connecting.html#email
    
      Email sent to an expired account can only be forwarded to another system - 
      it will not be saved here.  You can also have your own automated reply that 
      tells the sender about your new email address.  If you do not set this up,
      the senders will receive an automated reply telling them that the email 
      address is no longer valid.   Email will be forwarded for up to one year
      after a named account expires.
    
      These features are set in a .procmailrc file in your UNIX home directory.
      You can create or edit the file using a text editor (vi, emacs) when logged 
      into your UNIX account.  You can also copy a .procmailrc into an expired 
      account using 'sftp' (see What happens to the files in an expired account?).
    
      Each rule in .procmailrc starts with a ":0" line.
      The "c" in :0c: says to continue to the next rule after processing this one.
    
      To enable email forwarding, add a rule like this at the beginning of the 
      rules in .procmailrc:
    
    	:0c:
    	! me@new.edu
    
      To enable an auto-reply that is sent in response to incoming email, add this
      rule at the beginning of the rules in .procmailrc:
    
    	:0c:
    	* !^From[: ].*$LOGNAME
    	| /usr/bin/vacation $LOGNAME
    
      For auto-replies, you also need to create a message in a file called 
      .vacation.msg and initialize the UNIX "vacation" program.  For example:
    
           echo "My new email address is me@new.edu." > ~/.vacation.msg
           vacation -I
    
      You can use a editor to create a better message in the .vacation.msg file.
      See "man vacation" on a UNIX system for more options.
    
    

    How can I check my grades?

      The Registrar posts grades at CalCentral.
       
      If your class used the EECS Instructional grading software ('submit' and 
      'glookup'), you can still see the 'glookup' results after the account has
      expired:
    
      Login at the WebAcct site: http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/webacct/. 
      Select "List local grades - glookup".
    
      Your grades will be displayed for any EECS classes that use a local grading 
      database ('glookup') this semester.  This lasts for 1-2 weeks after the 
      account has expired.   
    
    

    What happens to my Microsoft Imagine account?

      All current students at UCB can access the Microsoft Imagine Standard 
      software download site via http://software.berkeley.edu/microsoft.  
      Students in EECS majors and classes can request additional Microsoft 
      Premium products via http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/webacct.
     
      EECS users will not be able to request the Premium products between
      semesters (Dec 17-Jan 18), but if you already have it, access will 
      continue during that time.   On January 18 2019, the previous users 
      will be purged.  Users who are eligible for the Spring 2019 semester
      will be able to renew it via http://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/webacct.
    
      Microsoft Imagine was formerly called "Dreamspark" and "e-Academy".
    

    'CLASS' ACCOUNTS THAT WILL NOT EXPIRE

      Instructors must notify inst@eecs about any class accounts that need 
      to be extended after December 17.
    
    

    'NAMED' ACCOUNTS THAT WILL EXPIRE

      Users can use WebAcct to check on the status of their Instructional UNIX 
      named accounts: login using your CalNet ID or Instructional UNIX account.
