In this lesson, you will learn how to configure your Faith Mail to forward to another email account you manage. Warning: If you elect to forward your Faith Mail to another email account, you take responsibility to make sure that you manage this and make sure it works. For example, if you ever change your other email account, YOU must return to your Faith Mail account and reconfigure email forwarding or you will no longer receive important email communications from Faith Academy.
Note: By not signing in regularly to your Faith Mail, you will not be able to take advantage of some of the powerful features of our system, such as a Global Email Address List, shared Calendars, shared Documents, etc.
Using the Faith Mail credentials you received, sign into Faith Mail.
From your Faith Mail "mail" page...
From the Settings link bar (highlighted green oval above), locate and select the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" section and click on it (#2 above) to reveal these settings.
In the Forwarding section, click the "Add a forwarding address" button (#1 above). This will open the "Add a forwarding address" pop-up window. In the space provided (#2 above), enter the email address to which you would like your email forwarded and click Next.
Verify that the email address displayed (#1 above) is correct and click proceed (#2 above)
After confirming your email forwarding address, your Mail Settings page is displayed again. In the Forwarding section at the top...
After configuring email forwarding as desired, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Save button (#1 above). This will save your changes and take you back to your Faith Mail Inbox.
TEST: Using another email account, send an email to your Faith Mail address/account (see the top right for your Faith Mail email address). Verify 2 things: First, confirm that your Faith Mail shows the message in your Inbox (depending on how you configured your forwarding options), and second, confirm that your Forwarding Address account also received a copy of the message. If things work as desired, Sign out of your Faith Mail. If things did now work, open your Mail Settings per these instructions and verify that your Forwarding Address was correctly entered. If things still do not work, please feel free to seek assistance from the Faith Academy Information Technology Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
