Outlook - Forwarding Email in O365

Last Updated: Mar 09, 2018 01:23PM PST

Forward email from Office 365 to another email account

It's easy to set up forwarding so email sent to your Office 365 account automatically goes to another email account, such as your Gmail account.

  1. Sign in to Office 365 at

  2. At the top of the page, choose Settings Settings: update your profile, install software and connect it to the cloud > Mail.

    Choose Mail.

  3. Choose Forwarding. If you don't see this option, it's not available for your account.

    Choose Forwarding.

  4. You can forward email to one other account.  

What else do I need to know?

  • If you don't see the Forwarding option, it may not be available for your account.

    Try using Inbox rules to set up forwarding. See Use rules in Outlook Web App to automatically forward messages to another account.

  • If you keep a copy of forwarded messages, check your Office 365 account regularly to make sure you haven't exceeded your mailbox size limit. If the size limit is exceeded new messages may not be forwarded.
