Due to a bug with the Google API, some Bren students do not have their @bren.ucsb.edu email address available when composing a new message. Receiving emails sent to your @bren.ucsb.edu address is unaffected by the bug.
It is important for Bren students use their @bren.ucsb.edu address as their contact information instead of their other UCSB emails because Bren students will maintain access to emails sent to their @bren.ucsb.edu address even after their UCSB Connect account expires, which happens 13 months after graduation.
We are recommending that those affected add their @bren.ucsb.edu account manually. Once added, you will be able to compose messages from your @bren.ucsb.edu email account.
