Thanks for your reply, but we are looking to deploy a forwarding system. We do not want to use GroupWise rules to do the forwarding.

Be aware that setting up a forwarding rule, which forwards email from GroupWise, to some other email service, may result in an email loop.  If the student specifies either an incorrect email address or an address that has a "full" email account (over quota), the email will get returned to the student, and the rule will kick in again and forward that message on.  I had one user who's email loop resulted in an account at 178Gig!  Read the article I wrote on this subject at:


If you are forced to set up a GroupWise rule, there should also be a prerequisite rule that throws out all email from the domain that the student specifies for their email.

Subject: [ngw] Email Forwarding Service

Is anyone out there using email forwarding services or software? If so, what are you using?

I am interested in finding a solution to allow users to have their email forwarded to an email address of their choice through a self-service interface... something other than requiring the user to log in to their GroupWise account, and setup a forward rule.

We are looking to potentially offer this to our students and alumni.

Any suggestions?
