Alumni Email Forwarding

Alumni
Features and Benefits: 

The alumni forwarding email service lets you publish a single email address that doesn't change, not matter how many 'real' email accounts you have.

Don't confuse your alumni forwarding address with a mailbox. It is simply a pointer to your real email box.

Getting Started: 

You can request an alumni forwarding address or change your forwarding target address on the Amherst College Alumni website.
