To ensure that the message is delivered, the e-mail from your TigerMail account must be sent to your full TigerMail address, including the "@tigers" portion of the address (mtiger1@tigers.lsu.edu). Sending an e-mail from your TigerMail account to your TigerMail address in the <PAWSID>@lsu.edu format (mtiger1@lsu.edu) will not deliver a message to your TigerMail inbox.
