E-mail Forwarding

How to Forward Your OWU BishopMail to Another Address

The University sends official electronic communications to your campus e-mail account ONLY. You are responsible for regularly checking your campus e-mail. If you have already established an e-mail address that you prefer to use as your primary e-mail address, you can configure your campus e-mail to forward messages automatically to that account. You’ll need to follow these instructions in a desktop or laptop web browser:

  1. Log into BishopMail.
  2. Click on the gear iconĀ Gmail gear button at top right, and select Settings from the menu.
  3. Click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP link along the top of the settings area.
  4. Click the “Add a forwarding address” button.
  5. Enter an email address in the box where prompted, and click the Next button.
  6. Click the Proceed when prompted.
  7. Click the OK button on the confirmation window.
  8. Click the circle next to “Forward a copy of incoming mail to” and select what you’d like to do with OWU BishopApps Mail’s copy.
  9. Click the Save Changes button at the bottom.

After a few minutes, it is a good idea to test it. Send a message to your own OWU e-mail address then check the account to which you have forwarded it to be sure it was received.
