  1. Read your exchange email separately - If, for example, you have a Umail and Exchange account, you can just read both of them frequently and keep the email separate.  You can use the OWA Web Interface to read your Exchange email or you can use any other email client (eg. Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, etc).  If you want to go with this option, then you are done.  The rest of this page involves setting up forwarding.

  2. Forward all your IU email to Exchange - If you want to have all your IU email forwarded to a single account, you can forward everything to the Exchange system and read it from there.  If you want to go that route, follow the instructions in step 2a below.  Since the IU Exchange system is the approved place for email communications that might contain sensitive information (such as email exchanges between students and their Instructor or AI), this is the recommended option for all faculty, staff, AIs, and UIs.

  3. Forward your Exchange email to some other account - If you would rather not have to read any email on Exchange, then you will have to forward that email elsewhere.  Just keep in mind that the IU Exchange system is the approved place for email communications that might contain sensitive information (such as email exchanges between students and their Instructor or AI).  If you want to go with this option, follow the instructions in step 2b below.   Before you chose this option, please review this KB page to be sure you are not violating IU email policies: Student use of email for work-related purposes.
