Forward your email to another account

If you already have your own personal email account, you can easily forward your University Office 365 emails to it, so you don't miss any important messages.

Once you've logged in to your Office 365 Mail:

 1.  At the top of the page, select the Settings Cog.  

 office 365 mail settings 







2.  Under Your app settings, choose Mail. 

3.  Go to Accounts > Forwarding. If you don't see this option, it's not available for your account. 












4.  Select Start forwarding and enter the email address of the account you want to forward your University email to. 

5.  Keep a copy of the forwarded messages in Outlook Web App. If you leave this box ticked, a copy of your emails will remain in your Office 365 email account.

6  Click SAVE.


  • You should regularly check your non-University account, as it can cause problems if mail is rejected from the other address (e.g. if the Inbox is full).
  • The University can take no responsibility for the functioning of external mail services, and cannot guarantee that forwarded mail will reach an external service.
  • If the Settings Cog doesn't appear, try using an alternative web browser such as Firefox.
