Forwarding

Forwarding e-mail to a university account is recommended for receiving university communications. All graduate students, faculty, and staff have a Fisher e-mail account and an OSU e-mail account. Undergraduate students do not have a Fisher e-mail account.

 

OSU E-mail Account to FCOB E-mail Account

OSU E-mail Address : lastname.#@osu.edu
Fisher E-mail Address :
lastname.#@fisher.osu.edu

To change your OSU lastname.#@osu.edu delivery options, including forwarding to another e-mail account, visit OSU's Account Management Site.

 

Fisher Account to Other Accounts

ITS has implemented an automated mechanism for enabling forwarding of your Fisher e-mail account to other domains like Gmail or Yahoo! .

You can set the forward through the Fisher CMS:

  1. Log in using your Fisher username ( lastname.# ) and password.
  2. Click on "E-mail Forwarding" in the top menu.
  3. In the text field titled "E-mail Forward Target", enter the e-mail address to which you'd like your mail forwarded.
  4. Confirm the e-mail address by filling in the "Confirm the E-mail Target" field.
  5. Press the "Submit" button (please allow up to 10 minutes for the change to take effect).

If a message appears on the page that says "E-mail forward successfully changed!", then your e-mail forwarding has successfully been put in place. Otherwise, an error probably occurred. Most error messages will have some instructions on how best to proceed to resolve the issue. If you cannot resolve the issue, please contact the Helpdesk for assistance.

To change your settings to forward your Fisher e-mail to a different e-mail address, please follow the same process as above except that an existing forward will appear in the "Existing -E-mail Forward" box to inform you of your current settings.

 

Discontinue Forwarding

To stop forwarding your Fisher e-mail:

  1. Log in in to the Fisher CMS using your Fisher ID ( lastname.# ) and password.
  2. Click on "E-mail Forwarding" in the top menu.
  3. Click the "Disable" button in the "Existing E-mail Forward" box.

If a message appears on the page that says "E-mail forward successfully disabled!", then your e-mail forwarding has successfully been turned off. Otherwise, an error probably occurred. Most error messages will have some instructions on how best to proceed to resolve the issue. If you cannot resolve the issue, please contact the Helpdesk for assistance.

 

E-mail Forwarding after Graduation or Departure

Once you depart from Fisher College of Business, your Fisher e-mail account (lastname.#@fisher.osu.edu ) is permanently deleted two (2) terms past graduation or departure from the college.

Current and recent graduates’ buckeyemail accounts don’t expire and therefore don’t require e-mail forwarding.  Any changes to their e-mail (including optional e-mail forwarding) must be made using the OIT account management page on the 8HELP site.

Lifetime E-mail forwarding is currently only relevant to retirees and alumni who graduated prior to the year 2010.
