Email forwarding

Email forwarding is used to redirect your email to another account.

You can choose to forward your University account to another account if that helps you to keep up-to-date.

  • You can only forward to ONE email address from your University email account
  • More than one University email account cannot forward to the same external email address. For example you cannot forward emails from two different University accounts to the same Hotmail address
  • If you are forwarding to another University account then you will need to enter the address in the format username@liverpool.ac.uk.
