Directing e-mail away from Office 365

After starting to use the Office 365 e-mail service, all e-mails to will be directed to the Office 365 server. If you want to read your e-mails on another system, you can direct your e-mails elsewhere according to these instructions. For more information on redirecting e-mail, see the ICT Driving Licence materials.

Note! Forwarding or redirecting official mail, i.e. e-mails related to work duties, to an address outside the university is always prohibited based on the university’s e-mail processing rules.
