Forward Your CC Email to Another Email Account
There are a couple of common ways to forward your email to another account. Many people use Gmail, but there is another method below that will work for anyone.
Because there are some drawbacks to each method, the best way to access your email is to use Exchange settings if you can. We have a guide to Exchange settings here: Exchange Settings
1. In Gmail: Go to settings > Accounts and import > Check mail from other accounts > Click "Add a POP3 account you own"
2. Follow the instructions and fill out the form, but when you get to the username and password screen, change the username to your CC username (ex. c_redfield).
3. For Server, hit the drop-down menu and select "email.coloradocollege.edu." Leave the Port as 995.
4. It's a good idea and highly recommended to check "Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server." If you check this then you'll have a backup of your messages in your CC inbox and you will be able to access your entire mailbox from any other mail program. If your CC mailbox fills up, however, you'll have to go into your CC inbox via "https://email.coloradocollege.edu" in order to do some cleaning out.
5. Click Add Account and you should be done!
Forward Mail Alternate Method:
1. Sign on to your CC email from "https://email.coloradocollege.edu"
2. Click "Options" > Click "Create an Inbox Rule"
3. Click "New." In the window that pops up, click the dropdown and select "Apply to All Messages" for the first option ("When the message arrives, and"), then click "Redirect the message to.." for the second option ("Do the following").
4. A window will pop up, type in the email address you'd like to forward messages to. Then click "OK."
5. This rule will now redirect all messages to the email address you typed in above. Please note:
- Redirecting your messages this way will leave a "copy" of your messages in the deleted items folder of your CC mailbox, so you will need to periodically sign on to "https://email.coloradocollege.edu" to clean this folder out and ensure you don't go over your size limit.
- Some types of messages won't trigger Inbox rules, including:
-Delivery status notifications, which include non-delivery reports and system messages.
-Read receipts and delivery receipts that are generated by an e-mail client.
-Some automatic-reply (Out of Office) messages.
