Note for Faculty and Staff Only:
Forwarding faculty/staff e-mail from University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) e-mail servers to another email provider is not recommended by the UCCS Information Technology (IT) department. When UCCS e-mail is forwarded, the e-mail is not stored on UCCS resources, and in the event of an outage the e-mail may not be recoverable. Additionally, University of Colorado Records Retention policy (https://www.cu.edu/policies/aps/administrative/2006.html) states that, faculty and staff must utilize university-owned e-mail accounts to conduct university-related business. This is in part because University of Colorado employees have legal obligations to maintain and/or produce electronic information in the event of litigation or open records request. UCCS does not have control over forwarded e-mail once it leaves UCCS servers. In addition, UCCS IT is not responsible for any email messages lost due to the misconfiguration of forwarded e-mail onto a third party provider.
