Upon retiring after decades with the same university and rank of full professor I did not realize that I would lose my faculty email account until it was too late to save years of correspondence including correspondence concerning a paper currently being refereed for publication. Are there any recommended policies on this issue for faculty retiring from colleges and universities?

I have a friend who retired from Swarthmore who said "emeritus means forever" in response to my assumption that his e-mail would expire. Whether or not that's technically accurate, his e-mail persists.
