Forwarding e-mails

  1. Log in at Managing e-mail forwarding with your personal u:account or with the login details of the service e-mail address.
  2. Enter the target e-mail addresses to which you would like your e-mails to be forwarded. You can also forward your e-mails to several e-mail addresses.

You can forward your e-mails and keep a copy of the e-mail on the server of the University of Vienna at the same time. To do so, please activate the check box next to Kopie der E-Mails am IMAP-Server der Universität Wien belassen (keep a copy of e-mails on the IMAP server of the University of Vienna) after setting up the forwarding in the form Managing e-mail forwarding.

Forwarding of an Exchange e-mail address


  • In the form Managing e-mail forwarding, the check box Forwarding e-mails to Exchange server is activated by default for exchange e-mail addresses. If you deactivate this check box, your e-mails will no longer be delivered to the Exchange server. Please use this option with caution.
  • To forward e-mails addressed to an Exchange e-mail address, use the functionalities provided by your locally installed software (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird) or the Outlook Web App (OWA).
