UA email forwarding policy change

The following policy change to the UA system Accounting and Administrative Manual (No.: 300: A-01) no longer allows for employees to forward their work email to a personal email:

3.4 Email Forwarding
Email “forwarding” refers to the practice of setting an alternate, non-UA email destination, whereby computing systems automatically redirect (or copy) incoming mail to another address or mail system. Employees may not “forward” email outside of the university provided email systems. Non-employees may forward email; however, they assume responsibility for data security, and for ensuring that institutional messages are received in the destination system. Using the forward button to send a copy of a message is not restricted by this section.

This change is intended to better protect University and student information. Please remove any “auto-forward” you may have on your UA work email account. To manage your email forwarding settings, log in to and click the "change" button next to the "Email Destination" field.
