Forwarding your Central (ITS) Email to CS

This guide applies to staff and postgraduate research students.

If you are a member of staff or postgraduate research student you may be provided with a central University mailbox. To check you should try logging in to https://mail.bham.ac.uk/ - if you are able to login then you can continue to follow this guide. If you cannot log in then you can request that you get an Exchange mailbox via Service Desk.

Once logged in to the Outlook Web App (OWA) - mail.bham.ac.uk - there should be a drop down box to the top-right of the interface. Select 'Options' and then 'Create an Inbox Rule...'

Please note that at the moment (November 2015) the Chrome browser is not fully integrated with OWA - for this sort of 'advanced' configuration you should use Internet Explorer / Firefox / Edge.

Essentially you are applying the rule to all messages - Forward the message to YOURUSERNAME@cs.bham.ac.uk
