LSUS Email Forwarding

You are able to forward your email to another email address that you own. This is done through the Outlook Web Access (OWA) webpage. Currently, this process varies depending on whether you are a student or a Faculty/Staff member.

Office 365 is in the process of rolling out a 'new look'. When you log in to your email in the top right will be a toggle for the new look.

NEW LOOK:

1) If you are a student log into mail.lsus.edu. If you are faculty or staff log into access.lsus.edu

2) Click on the "Cog" button in the top right corner of the screen.

4) Click"Mail."

5) Click  "Forwarding."

6) Check "Enable forwarding" then enter the desired email address.

7) Click "Save" to save the rule.


You now have created an inbox rule that will forward any email that arrives into your LSUS inbox to a specified email address.
