EMU provides full service email accounts only for those who are currently faculty, staff, emeriti, or current and recent students. For all others who have EMU email accounts, including most alumni, and students who have not enrolled recently, EMU will provide a forward only email account. If you are reading this page, you have probably been notified as someone who has a forward only account.
If you have a forward only account, you will need set a personal forwarding address (e.g., a GMail or Yahoo email address) to continue receiving your @emich.edu email messages. Forward only account holders will not be able to log in to the EMU email system to receive mail; instead, you will need to login to your personal email account that you have designated for email forwarding. No email will be stored on EMU servers for forward only accounts.
If you do not have a forward only account and you want to forward @emich.edu email messages to an personal forwarding address, see Setting a Forwarding Address for more information.
Follow these directions to set up a forward only account:
