If you have an Office 365 account you can use the Office 365 forwarding tools to forward your email to a different account.

Anyone who does NOT have an Office 365 account (such as students on BU Google Mail, individuals with virtual email addresses, etc.) should use the Email Forwarding System (EFS) to forward your mail to an external email account or, less commonly, from one BU email account to another. If you already have an email account that you prefer to use, you can forward BU mail to it and work with all of your mail in one location.


    • You must have a BU email address (see Accounts & Access).
    • You must also have an existing account to receive the forwarded messages (e.g., you@gmail.com).
