How do I forward my student email to another email account?

Go to the myCVCC website

Go back to the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” section of “Settings”

Click the button beside “Forward a copy of incoming mail to” and take note of the settings in the two drop down menus, then at the bottom of the page click the button to “Save Changes” and you’re done.

This is normal.

After the site has been added (it will appear in the large middle box), click “Close”. The site will reload.
