Universities and Colleges have historically provided email forwarding services for their Alumni and other campus groups. Email forwarding for these Alumni was typically handled on the same infrastructure as the core email services for the university. Unfortunately as more and more schools migrate to the cloud there are challenges with using Office 365, G Suite or other hosted platform for Alumni email forwarding.
Alumni Forwarding was created to allow for the permanent forwarding email addresses alumni. Email is not stored in these accounts but they are forwarded to the destination mailbox for your alumni.
Allow your recent grads, staff/faculty alum to receive @alumni.school.edu messages to their personal or business mailbox.
This service is ideal to for recent graduates, a current alum or a staff/faculty alum departing the university, and it allows everyone to remain in contact with classmates and other members of the University community and offers a clear association with your school even after they leave.
You can set up an alumni forwarding address and have email which is sent to that address redirected to your users current address. This way you can have access to your alumni email address inside your current email client.
All alumni forwarding email is spam filtered and the forwarding addresses are validated. We can provide optional Phishing Protection that is similar to Microsoft Advanced Threat Defense for your alumni forwarding emails.
We can provide support in the migration of Postfix, Exim, or Sendmail legacy user accounts.
All accounts include 24x7 support, web administration and user creation API.
We will work with you to correctly configure your SPF, DKIM and DMARC record to ensure the messages are delivered to your Alumni. We provide transparent logging and a rich administrative interface to manage users. We will be introducing the ability for users to update their own forwarding address to keep the burden off our your help desk staff.

No, this is only an email address that is linked to an existing email account (i.e. gmail, yahoo). You will not have access to a separate inbox. All messages sent to your @alumni.school.edu address will be directed to your linked email account’s inbox.
Once you activate your Alumni Email for Life address, all messages sent to your Alumni Email for Life address will be re-directed to the email address of your choice.
Your email is a permanent forwarding vehicle where email gets redirected to your personal or business mailbox and enables alumni to keep in touch with one another as they move and change jobs. A non-school email address is necessary in order to receive and respond to your forwarded email.
Please note that you cannot log into your alumni forwarding email to send emails. You can only have emails sent to that address and then redirected to your personal email account.
All emails will be sent using your existing email account. Your email provider may allow you to set up an alternate “Reply” address in your email account to show your @alumni.school.edu. You may need to check with your email provider for instructions on how to do this:
While our email forwarding interface is design to meet the needs of Alumni we have found that a number of schools and Universities are using this to forward for subdomains.
Some use cases are to forward a subdomain like business.school.edu to an Office365 instance, or even to have multiple subdomains forwarding to the same destination for server consolidation.
All of our messages routing /email forwarding will be protected from spam and viruses - if we did not do this, it would impact deliverability and IP reputation. We do not want to be delivering Spam to Office365, Gmail or any destination server.
Messages will be sanitized and optionally quarantined before routing to the next destination.
