Email forwarding

Email forwarding is a function which allows you to resend an email in its original form from one address to another. It may also be used as a way to forward an email to a different destination. You can take it one step higher and create a specific email and route all the emails to that email address.

  1. To set up automatic forwarding, you must head to Settings > View all Outlook settings.
  2. Select Mail > Forwarding. Then select Start forwarding, enter the email address to which you will be forwarding messages and click Save.
