Managing alternate email addresses with your @u.northwestern.edu (or other G Suite) account

If you have another email account – whether it is a Northwestern email account or an external account – you can use your G Suite account to manage it. This article applies to @u.northwestern.edu, @nlaw.northwestern.edu, @alum.northwestern.edu, @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu, and @fsm.northwestern.edu accounts.

Forward messages to and from your G Suite account

You can forward messages from your G Suite account to another email account, such as an @northwestern.edu, @gmail.com, or @yahoo.com account. You can also forward messages from another account to your G Suite account.

Feinberg-affiliated individuals cannot forward messages from their @northwestern.edu account due to security restrictions, but can forward messages from a G Suite account to their @northwestern.edu account.

Since the University will send official correspondence to your G Suite account, we suggest that you keep a copy of your mail in the G Suite account inbox instead of deleting it upon forwarding.

Pull email from another account into your G Suite account

You can use POP to get emails from another email account and read them inside your G Suite account.

Feinberg-affiliated individuals will not be able to pull emails from their @northwestern.edu (Exchange) account due to security restrictions.

“Send as” another email account from within your G Suite account

You can modify your email settings to send email from an account nickname or another, non-Northwestern email address you own. 

Feinberg-affiliated individuals will not be able to set up their @northwestern.edu (Exchange) account as an “account you own” in a G Suite account due to security restrictions.

Managing contacts

You can either import or export contacts to move contacts between your G Suite account and another account you own.
