University GMail Accounts

For those people in the Department who do not use their umn.edu email accounts directly, information about the U's Gmail transition is below.

Forwarding UMN Gmail to Physics Mailbox

  1. Log in to your new University Gmail account: http://mail.umn.edu
  2. Warning: Do not set up the forwarding below if you already forward mail from your physics email account to your umn.edu account, or you will cause a loop and lose mail!
  3. Click the spoke icon at top-right of the page. A menu will appear, select “Mail Settings”
  4. Select the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab
  5. Click the “Add a Forwarding Address” button
  6. Enter your physics (or astro) email address and click “ok”
  7. Select the 'Forward a copy of incoming mail to…' option and select your forwarding address from the drop-down menu.
  8. Select the action you'd like your messages to take from the drop-down menu. You can choose to keep Gmail's copy of the message in your inbox, or you can send it automatically to All Mail or Trash.
  9. Click Save Changes.
  10. Next, we will set up so that the University Gmail does not put anything into the Spam Folder and instead forwards on spam messages to the e-mail address that was set up above.
  11. First, go into settings.
  12. Next, click 'Filters'
  13. Click 'Create a new filter'
  14. Set it up as follows:
    1. Fill the box as follows:
    2. Then click “Create Filter with this Search”
    3. A warning will pop up, click 'Ok'
    4. Check the box next to “Never send it to Spam”
    5. Click “Create Filter”
  15. Now you can log out and all mail will be forwarded
