This page includes instructions, as well as warnings, about forwarding your Exchange email messages to a different email account.

Technology Services does not recommend forwarding your University Exchange email to another account. If you choose to forward your email, please be aware that you may encounter the following problems:
Forwarding your email might be a good idea for those who graduate from the University. People that are graduating will have access to their Exchange mailbox for approximately 30 days after their affiliation from the University ends. After that, graduates will be able to use email redirection and receive email sent to their email@example.com. People that retire from the University will maintain use of their Exchange mailbox, but will need to access it via the Outlook on the Web client or on a mobile device.
