Turning Off Email Forwarding and Redirection

Forwarding to non-UVM email services is prohibited

The University of Vermont’s Information Security Policy prohibits Faculty, Staff, and Employees from forwarding or redirecting UVM email to non-UVM email services (i.e. Google, Yahoo, etc).

The method for turning off forwarding and redirection will differ based on how it was originally set up. If you can’t remember whether you used Exchange Online’s mail forwarding feature or an inbox rule, you can just try both methods.

Not sure if you're on Exchange Online or on-premises Exchange?

All users can sign in to Outlook on the Web at mail.uvm.edu, but Exchange Online users will be redirected to Microsoft’s outlook.office.com service after signing in.

Turn off Exchange Online forwarding

  1. In a web browser, navigate to mail.uvm.edu
  2. Log in with your NetID and password
  3. Click the Gear icon near the upper-right corner to open the Settings menu, and then click View all Outlook settings
  4. Open the Mail tab on the left side, and then select Forwarding
  5. Uncheck the box next to Enable forwarding and click Save

That’s it! Thank you for complying with UVM Security Policy!

Remove an inbox rule (Exchange Online)

  1. In a web browser, navigate to mail.uvm.edu
  2. Log in with your NetID and password

  4. Open the Mail tab on the left side, and then select Rules
  5. Click the Trash icon next to the rule you would like to delete
  6. Confirm that you would like to delete the rule by clicking OK

That’s it! Thank you for complying with UVM Security Policy!

Remove an inbox rule (On-Premises Exchange)
