Under the old platform I had my emails auto forwarded to my hotmail account.

How do I change / amend where I auto forward emails to?

You can add a forwarding email address through the main website rather than the email client.

1. Click Email in the left navigation menu.

2. Click Manage my email account.



3. Click on the pencil icon next to the email address you would like to edit.



4. When the page loads, you will see a field to add a forwarding email address under the "Advanced" section.



If this post helps, please give a "Star" and complete this survey to rate me.

Thanks!

Bill2144,  Are all forwarded and auto-forwarded emails failing? Or, do some of them go through.  

How about if you just send a new email to that aol address? Does it then go through?

Forwarding can take a bit before it starts working, but keep in mind that many mail servers are trying to eliminate forwarding, so this process does greatly increase the chances your message will be marked as spam.

I'm having the same issues.  Forwarding mail automatically has been in place for years, but several months ago it just quit.   My preferences are set for forwarding, yet it has ceased to forward.

No, it does not forward as spam, it just does not forward.   If this is not resolved, I'm out of here; I have to have a mail system which forwards. Plain and simple.

Is it all email? We can log in to your email and check a message to see if we can see what is happening. I will advise that forwarding is likely to be a function that will not exist in the future. This is a practice that is being phased out. There are options that may work for you, so we can make suggestions based on what you do.
