Is it safe to say that the first part of the email ID of Broadcom employees is the same as before and just ca.com was changed to broadcom.com?
In general, that principle is adhered to.
However, consider the case of John.Doe@ca.com when there is already a John Doe working at Broadcom with email address John.Doe@broadcom.com. There has to be a suffix or adornment in the name somewhere to differentiate between the two - I have seen a couple of different adornments and so I'm not sure of the rules on how they are generated.
All mail to John.Doe@ca.com is forwarded to the new Broadcom equivalent, so what I have done where needed is to use the old CA mail and ask…
It must be bittersweet to say adieu to the short ca.com domain name. And adding insult to injury, one must now type ‘com’ twice!
Another wrinkle is full first name vs. nicknames. For instance, my CA email used to be lenn.thompson but my Broadcom one is leonard.thompson. So far I haven't been able to figure out how to change it or create an alias.
Mine was always email@example.com, which for 7 years I never questioned, although I was surprised it was never set at firstname.lastname@example.org , but hey. It has now gone to steve-SH.email@example.com, which I find rather clunky!
