Alert message

No. If you work in a school district and forward personal information about students in your email messages - who is at risk? You and potentially the student.

You can, however, forward your email to a co-worker within your domain while you are on vacation.

  1. To do so, open the Gmail account that you want to forward from and click on the gear icon then click on the 'Settings' link.
  2. Find the 'Forwarding and Pop/IMAP' tab at the top.
  3. Click on ADD A FORWARDING ADDRESS which will bring up a pop-up box that allows you to put in the address you want to forward your mail TO. This should NOT be a personal email account address.
  4. Go back to your 'Settings', 'FORWARDING AND POP/IMAP' page and make sure that 'FORWARD A COPY OF INCOMING MAIL' is selected and that the email account is selected from the drop-down menu.
  5. Now you will have to determine what to do with the messages AFTER they're forwarded, such as keep as copy in the 'Inbox' (recommended) or archive it.
  6. As always, at the bottom of the page, 'Save Changes'.
