(updated) Mail forwarding is not going away—we are changing how you manage your email forwarding
We would like to offer clarification regarding the recent update on email forwarding, as mentioned in the May 3 UITS Monitor. Most importantly, this change will not affect your ability to forward emails to recipients outside of IU on an individual basis. However, the “Forward email” option for external addresses will be removed from theManage Your Emailportal. After May 16, if you wish to set up email forwarding to external addresses, you will need tocreate new forwarding rules in your Outlook mailbox. It’s important to note that if you have existing forwards set up using the Manage Your Email portal, they will not be removed as part of the update on May 16.
UITS will communicate directly with owners of affected accounts about these changes.
