Setting up and cancelling forwarding of email

It is straight forward to set up or cancel email forwarding. 


IMPORTANT :  To comply with the Data Protection Act, you must not auto-forward your incoming email to another person's email address.  If you want another person to handle email meant for you, you should set up an autoreply on your account giving instructions to email work-related messages to the other person's address.  That will help ensure only work-related email, and no personal or confidential email would be sent to the other person, and would thus comply with the Data Protection Act.  Instructions for setting up autoreplies are given in FAQ 2298.
