It is very important to have an activated UI email address. However, not everyone wants to keep track of multiple email addresses and/or log into their UI mailbox each day. It is possible to forward all emails received by your UI email address to a different address, such as Gmail.

1) Open your browser and go to outlook.hi.is
2) Click on the gear wheel in the top right corner, followed by "View all Outlook settings" at the bottom:
3) This window will open. Select "Email" and then "Forwarding". Tick the box next to "Enable forwarding" and type the email address you wish to forward mail to. If you want to keep a copy in your UI mailbox, tick the box next to "Keep a copy of forwarded messages". Click "Save" at the top:
