Setting up email forwarding

Forwarding your email to another address

If you wish to read your email from off-campus, this can be done using Outlook Web Access

If, however, you you have other reasons for wishing to arrange for forwarding of new emails to another address, perhaps to make use of the greater email quotas typically offered by external email services, then use the email forwarding form.

Note:

NB ISS neither recommends you use an external mail service, nor recommends you do not: there are pros and cons to both choices, and the choice is yours. However, if you do choose to have your Essex email forwarded to an external service, then ISS's responsibility for the email ceases as soon as the external service accepts it from us. If it fails to reach your mailbox, or is subsequently lost, there is nothing ISS can do about it.
