Email, How to stop forwarding to an alternate email address

How do I stop forwarding to my alternate email address?

Follow these steps to revert back to your @illinois.edu account.

  1. Go to the Electronic Directory Editor (EDE).
  2. Log in to the EDE with your NetID and NetID password.
  3. Once you have logged in to the EDE, find the mail field and replace the existing email address with your University email address. This should be either yournetid@g.illinois.edu (undergraduates with Google Apps @ Illinois accounts) or yournetid@mx.uillinois.edu (faculty, staff, graduate and professional students with Exchange accounts).
  4. Click the Apply button at the top or bottom of the EDE webpage, and then log out.
  5. If you're using Microsoft Exchange and created a rule to redirect email you will also need to delete that rule. 
NOTE: Changes to your email address may take up to 2-4 hrs to propagate to the email relays. 

Please note: Faculty and staff can no longer redirect or auto-forward their university email. Please see this KB for more information: Privacy & Cybersecurity, Faculty and Staff Email Auto-forwarding Retirement FAQ
