Forward E-mail from mail.msu.edu

It is strongly recommended that users forward e-mail sent to their MSU e-mail accounts to their EGR account. EGR e-mail offers features such as reduced spam, larger space to save e-mails and backups of each mailbox.

Below are instructions for setting your account on mail.msu.edu to forward to another e-mail account. If you have not activated your mail.msu.edu account, you will need to do so prior to setting up forwarding. Please see the following web page for activation of your mail.msu.edu account.
