What's the difference: lpl.arizona.edu AND email.arizona.edu ?

All faculty, students, and staff at the University of Arizona are assigned an official UA email account (email.arizona.edu). This is the address to which official university correspondence is directed by default. Members of PTYS/LPL also receive an LPL email account (lpl.arizona.edu). Be advised that you will either have to check both accounts, or forward/merge accounts. John Pursch (pursch@lpl.arizona.edu) can assist you in setting up your email account and providing instruction regarding access.
