In certain cases it can be helpful to be able to forward email from Office 365. Microsoft Outlook has this functionality, but sometimes it is convenient to be able to do it without Outlook – especially if you don’t have Outlook attached to the account that you want to forward email from.
The steps for forwarding email using only the Office 365 Web App are very simple and listed below.
- Go to the Office 365 mail sign in page and sign in with the user that you want to forward email from.
- In the top right hand corner, drop down the “Options” menu and click “See All Options”
- You will end up on the “My Account” page. Click the “Connected Accounts” tab at the top.
- At the bottom of the page, you will see a box that says “Forward my email to:”. Type in the email address that you would like to forward your email to the click the “start forwarding” button. See the picture below.
The check box below also gives you the option of whether or not to keep a copy of the email in your Office 365 mailbox. Once you have completed these steps, you should be all done and ready to forward email from Office 365.
