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 (such as Gmail, GMX, Web.de).

For these reasons, we advise against using forwarding!


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