Student Email Routing and Forwarding Change July 22, 2018

Related services: Cmail: Email for Students


Beginning July 22, 2018, all incoming email to Cornell student addresses will go directly to Office 365, then be automatically forwarded to their account in Google. This change has been directed by university IT governance and leadership and is the latest step in the process of removing Cornell infrastructure from the handling of email.

When Cornell systems are removed from email handling, it will no longer be possible to set forwarding using Who I Am. Instead, it will be accomplished using Google settings for forwarding, which can only be changed by the individual accountholder.

This means all students who want their Cornell mail to be delivered somewhere other than Google will need to set it up themselves by following Google's forwarding instructions.

All students who are currently forwarding their email somewhere other than their Cornell Google account will be notified they need to set up new forwarding in Google by July 22. Otherwise, when their mail stops passing through Cornell systems, it will only be delivered to their Cornell Google account.
