Forwarding UF Exchange Mail
Employees who have an UF Exchange mailbox may request that mail directed to their Exchange email address, which is normally of the format email@example.com, is forwarded to another address. Normally, this procedure removes the UF Exchange mailbox completely and supplies a forwarding email address. Contact your local Local IT Support for assistance with mail forwarding.
All employees who have a GatorLink account also have a GatorLink email address of the form firstname.lastname@example.org. If an employee has no other work email address provided by their department, this address is directed to the GatorLink mailbox, accessible at http://webmail.ufl.edu.
If the employee has a mailbox on UF Exchange, however, the GatorLink email@example.com address is forwarded by policy to their firstname.lastname@example.org, where dept is the department name on UF Exchange. Your UF Exchange mailbox is accessible at http://www.mail.ufl.edu. Please contact your Local IT Support for assistance with email forwarding.
Technical note: Because of the policy and the established mail flow, it does not work well to use both a GatorLink mailbox and a UF Exchange mailbox. If this is done, mail from outside of UF Exchange will go to the GatorLink mailbox and mail sent by another UF Exchange user will go to the UF Exchange mailbox. This situation also increases the potential for a mail loop.
