I’m having a hard time creating an email address

Your email address has three requirements:

  • A 2-3 character preface
  • 3 sequential letters of your last name
  • Cannot contain numbers, periods/underscores/hyphens or spaces

Creating an email address can be difficult if you have a common last name. For some applicants, it may take several creative tries to find the right combination. If you’re really stuck, tried everything and it’s still not working, try the letters X, Y & Z.
