Forwarding Your Email

Tags Email forward

This article contains instructions for:

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

Note for Faculty/Staff:  Information Services and Information Security 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)
