As a student at Sheffield Hallam University you will be provided with an email address to use during your studies. Most emails sent to you from the university (including announcements, notifications and so on) will be sent to this account.
In some cases you may want to forward your SHU emails to another address. This could be useful if you synchronise a different personal address with a mobile device, or would like to keep all of your emails in one place.
SHU Google Mail allows you to do this quickly and easily. You can find step by step instructions on how to setup forwarding on the Google help centre.
When setting up forwarding you can choose what to do with the original email. A good choice would be to mark it as read or to archive it – that way you have a backup copy.
