“Approximately 60,000 new e-mail addresses will be introduced as a result of the changeover,” explained Andrew Pike, head of BASF’s Information Services division. “The new e-mail addresses will make it even easier for our customers to contact us because the e-mail address is derived directly from the employee’s name in most cases,” he said. At the same time, BASF will introduce a number of improvements to its e-mail system, such as an additional antivirus function and a more effective spam filter for unwanted mails.

More than 80 percent of all e-mail users in the BASF Group will be affected by the change. The new addresses will be introduced region by region: From December 5 in Europe, from January 16 in South America, from February 13 in parts of Asia Pacific, and from March 6 in North America. The last employees in Asia Pacific will receive their new mail addresses in August 2006. The old addresses will remain valid for 12 months following the introduction of the new addresses.
