To forward your mail to another mail box, log into and go to Preferences > Mail. Under the Receiving Messages heading, enter the address you want to forward to into the "Forward a copy to" field. You can also check the "Don’t keep a local copy of messages" option if you want your email forwarded, but not kept in SFU Connect.

SFU Connect will only accept one address in the "Forward a copy to" field. The easiest way to forward to multiple addresses is to set up a filter to forward the mail. First, create a filter to match the messages you want to forward. Then add multiple actions to this filter, each of which forwards to one of the addresses of your choice.

  • If you want to forward all your email, try using a filter with the match set to: Size over 0B
  • If you want the email kept locally, uncheck the "Do not process additional filters"
