Forward Email from One Account to Another on Outlook


Note: SCSU Information Technology Services does not recommend the practice of forwarding emails between accounts, but understands that some employees may have a need to forward emails from their student email account to their employee email account. SCSU Information Technology Services never recommends forwarding email from an employee account to a student account or from any SCSU email account to a personal email account.

If you choose to forward emails from a student account to an employee account, you may lose access to those emails upon departing the University.

** If you set up a rule on your shared mailbox, it will apply to EVERYONE using that shared mailbox. For example- if you set up a rule to move any email from SCSU to your clutter or your own personal inbox, this will effect the shared mailbox and all emails sent to the shared mailbox will be effected.**


Forward all messages to another account automatically

Messages that are forwarded will appear to be forwarded from you. When you reply to a message that has been forwarded, the reply will be sent to the address the message was forwarded from, not to the original sender.
