How to Setup Mail Forwarding for Rice Email
This document details forwarding faculty or staff email (using Cyrus mail servers) to an external or non-Rice email address.
Before you forward your Rice email:Notice: All official Rice University electronic communications are sent to faculty and staff rice.edu email addresses. Even if you have another email address, you still need to check your rice.edu email every day for important announcements from University administrators
If you prefer to forward your internal Rice email to an external Gmail or other non-Rice.edu address, first consider the type of data you will discuss in or attach to your email correspondence. Research and other data that is confidential or sensitive to the university should be handled with care to prevent data loss or leaks. Rice faculty, staff, and graduate students all use an internal email system. To protect sensitive Rice data, everyone with access to research data and other sensitive or confidential university information is automatically assigned to the internal university mail system.
