Setup Lifetime Email Forwarding Address

Issue/Question

  • How do I setup an OSU Lifetime Email Forwarding Address

Environment

  • Oregon State University
  • Email
  • Alums

Explanation

Oregon State University provides a lifetime email forwarding address for alumni. The format of this e-mail address is  "username@lifetime.oregonstate.edu", where you choose your own username. Emails sent to this account will be automatically forwarded to another account of your choice. ONID accounts are NOT lifetime addresses and they do NOT forward mail to your Lifetime Email address. 

OSU does not provide a Lifetime E-mail address or permanent e-mail forwarding for Non-Emeritus Faculty or Staff who leave the University. Nor does OSU provide permanent e-mail forwarding for students who leave without graduating.
