Forwarding Your Email

This article contains instructions for:

If you aren't sure which email system you are on, please see All About Email at UO.

Warning: The university cannot guarantee delivery of email to third-party email providers.
Note for Faculty and Staff: Information Services and the Information Security Office strongly discourage the use of email forwarding by University of Oregon employees, especially by faculty. University employees are responsible for complying with local, state, and federal laws, including FERPA. Communication between faculty and students often contains sensitive information that is protected by FERPA, and that information should stay within the university’s official email services. (Policy: Use of Email for Official and Mass Communications.).

If you will be graduating, please see the Lifetime email forward for graduating students FAQ.
