Electronic mail has become so pervasive that many staff and students find it necessary to check their email every day, even when they are away from Hong Kong. Of course, it is possible to check you email through the use of Web Mail over the Internet. However, sometimes when the Internet link is slow and you get large attachments, it can become too time-consuming. If you are fortunate enough to get another email account at the new environment, Computer Centre has now provided a simple means for you to re-direct all your incoming email to the email account at your new environment.
You can do this by using the email forwarding facility prepared by Computer Centre to forward all email sent to your hkucc (or hkusua)
account to another account specified by you. You can “forward” your
incoming email messages on your hkucc (or hkusua) account via "Electronic
Mail" at Computer Centre's homepage and then click
your HKUCC E-mail(or Redirecting
your HKUSUA E-mail) as shown in the following webpage.
In this web page, you need to type in your account
name and the associated password. If you are forwarding your email
to a new address, type in the forwarding address and then click the “Set
Forwarding” button. Please note that you need to input the full email
address in the “email forwarding address” field. In setting the forward
on, all the email coming to your HKU account will be forwarded to the new
email address. There will not be another copy left in your inbox
In the following screen, the email from my hkucc account is forwarded to my hkusua account.
When you return from your trip overseas, remember
to cancel your email forwarding using the same web page. Just type in your
username and password and then click the “Restore Forwarding” button as
in the following screen.
