Email Forwarding Service

These instructions ONLY apply to those using Caltech Standard (Unix) email. Email forwarding instructions for Office 365 Exchange can be found here.

If you choose not to read email using your access.caltech account, we ask that you set up forwarding to an address where you actually read your email. That way if there is ever a problem with your account, we can easily get in touch with you.

To set up email forwarding:

1. Go to and log in with your access.caltech username and password.

2. Click on the "My Account" application under the "Self Service" section

3. Enter the email address that you want to forward your email to and click Submit.

Note that if you have forwarding set up at the time your IMSS account is deleted, by default we provide inbound email forwarding for one year after the account deletion date as a courtesy service; this allows you to alert all of your correspondents of your change of address and the retirement of your email address.
