Use Forwarding to automatically forward all e-mail sent to your Outlook Web App account to another account.

How do I set up forwarding?

  1. Go to Options > Account > Connected Accounts.

  2. Under Forwarding, enter the e-mail address of the account you want all e-mail to be forwarded to.

  3. If you want to keep copies of messages that are sent to your account, select Keep a copy of forwarded messages in Outlook Web App.

  4. Click Save to save your changes and start forwarding all incoming messages to another account.

What else do I need to know?

  • To stop forwarding messages, click Stop Forwarding.

  • If you keep a copy of forwarded messages, you should check your Outlook Web App account regularly to be sure you haven't gone over your mailbox size limit. If you go over the mailbox size limit, new messages may not be forwarded.

  • Connected Accounts and Forwarding aren't meant to be used at the same time. Use Connected Accounts when you want e-mail that's sent to other accounts that you own to be delivered to Outlook Web App. Use Forwarding to have e-mail that's delivered to your Outlook Web App account be forwarded to other accounts.
