Through the Carnegie Mellon Web Portal
The Portal web service offers a friendly method of forwarding mail that is capable of the same results as the UNIX forward program. If you are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with Unix commands, follow these steps to set mail forwarding:
- From the Web Portal, select the COMPUTING tab.
- Select Manage Email and then addresses/forwarding.
- Select Modify for the email account you would like to have forwarded, such as your cmu.edu email or your andrew.cmu.edu email.
- In the Forward to text field, enter the appropriate email address, then click Add.
NOTE: If you would like to forward one copy of your email to an external account, while having another copy stored in your Andrew mailbox, set one of the mail forwarding addresses to go to userID@cyrus.andrew.cmu.edu. For example, email@example.com.
- Click Submit.
: Once you have mail forwarding set, review your spam filter options
. Turning on spam filtering can minimize junk email that is unsolicited or unwanted.
