This isn't a mistake; it's a purposeful step to make sure your emails don't get stopped as spam or seen as fake.
Here are the reasons for using a school-related email instead:
Passing the DMARC Test: Emails need to look like they're coming from the right place to get through spam filters. By sending from an email that matches the school domain, we make email servers trust the email more.
Protecting Personal Info: This way, John Doe's real email isn't given out to everyone, keeping his inbox safe from strangers.
Email Tracking: Changing the email also means we can later track how many people answer these emails, which helps understand how are people engaging.
