Those old addresses for Tribune employees stopped working yesterday.
The newspaper kept its @pratttribune.com domain but switched from addresses that describe job functions — such as firstname.lastname@example.org — to addresses that match employee names — such as email@example.com.
The changeover is part of a company-wide effort by GateHouse Media to standardize e-mail at its publications under the umbrella of technology giant Google, which offers a suite of online applications in addition to its near universal internet search engine.
New email addresses:
Conrad Easterday, general manager, firstname.lastname@example.org
Carol Bronson, news and lifestyles, email@example.com
Gale Rose, news and agriculture, firstname.lastname@example.org
Neil DePew, sports, email@example.com
Lisa Cromer-Miller, advertising manager, firstname.lastname@example.org
Christy Nemec, advertising representative, email@example.com
John Patton, advertising composition, firstname.lastname@example.org
Julie Chenoweth, classifieds, email@example.com
Alesia Hearn, circulation, firstname.lastname@example.org
