E-Mail Alias & E-Mail Forwarding

Getting the most out of your e-mail address

Your Uni-ID is too cryptic for you or you want to collect all e-mails in one e-mail address? Then this is the right place to learn more about setting up your e-mail aliases or e-mail forwarding. 

E-Mail Alias

Create a second e-mail address (a so-called e-mail alias, e.g., [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.]) via the Identity Management GOsa² and only give this e-mail address out to others. That way you can change the e-mail address in case your name changes. 


E-Mail Forwarding

You have the option to set up email forwarding via Identity Management GOsa2. E-mails to your [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.] and to any e-mail aliases set up will be sent to the e-mail forwarding address from the time of setup.
Attention! With e-mail forwarding, no copies of the received or forwarded messages are stored on the mail servers of the Universität Bonn. Furthermore, a successful forwarding cannot be guaranteed due to different policies of the external servers so only university domains are allowed as forwarding address.

For employees, automatic forwarding of e-mails to mail servers outside the domain is generally not permitted under data protection law.
