Forwarding E-Mail

When the University sends e-mail to FAU faculty, staff, or students, its policy is to send to only the official FAU e-mail address. Students may, if they choose, forward their e-mail to another account with the exception of students with @heath.fau.edu e-mail accounts. However, Faculty and Staff may not forward their email to another email account due to compliance needs of the university.

Forwarding your FAU e-mail isn't necessarily a good idea. To ensure that you receive your FAU e-mail, the Office of Information Technology recommends that you not forward your FAU e-mail account to any personal e-mail account.

FAU uses e-mail for much of its communication, such as student bills, financial aid disbursements, and emergency notices. To ensure that you receive your FAU e-mail, it is recommended that you not forward FAU emails to any personal e-mail accounts, all of which are using similar spam-blocking procedures. Also, if you have a problem receiving your FAU e-mail, our support team can better troubleshoot the problem with the mail is on FAU systems.
