SAS students can forward their SAS email to an account of their choosing. Here are some things that you should consider when forwarding your email
- Ability to set your from address - we highly recommend that you choose an email provider that allows you to set your from and reply-to addresses to be your SAS account.
- SPAM filtering - or we should say "over-filtering." Some email providers can mark legitimate mail from University contacts as SPAM. Different services have different protocols - some may put important mail mismarked as SPAM in your Junk folder, others may delete it altogether.
