Forward Lehigh Email to a Different Email Account

Services: 

You have the capability to forward email addressed to your Lehigh account to another account at Lehigh or to an account at another service provider (ISP). Certain communications which contain confidential information may be sent to your Lehigh address. If you set up automatic forwarding to another ISP, its confidentiality and delivery are not assured, and you accept the responsibility and the risks associated with doing so.

If you forward your mail to another ISP, please don't report to them that emails received through Lehigh are spam (even if they are). Mail forwarded in this manner will appear to be coming from Lehigh (instead of from its original location). Sometimes this causes the ISP to start blocking all mail coming from Lehigh, which means you will not get any more mail forwarded, nor will anyone else at your external ISP.
