How to Change Your UW Email Forwarding

School of Dentistry users are required to have their UW e-mails forwarded to Office 365 in order to be HIPAA compliant per section III.A3 of the Emailing Protected Health Information policy.

This article is to help users make sure their UW e-mails are being forwarded to Office 365.

Forwarding your UW Exchange account to Office 365:

  1. Open the page Change UW Email forwarding.
  2. Log in using your UW NetID credentials.
  3. Make sure the button to the left is set to Forward to UW Office 365.
  4. Click OK*.

*NOTE: If you do not have this option, then you will need to request access to Office 365. You will need to contact your department.

Once you have set the forwarding to Office 365, you can check your e-mail by navigating to the MyUW home page and clicking on the “Email” button in the top right corner. Otherwise, you can navigate to and sign in with your UW NetID credentials as well.
