Email Forwarding Service

 

Members of the UCSD Retirement Association can take advantage of our FREE email forwarding service. Email forwarding allows you to use your personal email account to send and receive messages from your ucsd.edu email address.

For Health Sciences retirees who join the UCSD Retirement Association, the association will assist in obtaining the issuance of a new @ucsd.edu email address (often just with the insertion of a middle initial), which is then eligible for email forwarding. As the previous @ucsd.edu email account will not forward, the health sciences retiree may establish an auto-responder message on the former email, which provides the new @ucsd.edu email address. This is required per UC San Diego Health Policy No. MCP 18.1.  

 

Setting up your UCSD email forwarding account

  1. You must first become a member of the UCSD Retirement Association. The email forwarding service is only available to current members of the Association.
  2. Upon joining the association, you will receive a Retirement Association member packet that includes the email forwarding setup form (PDF) and a form to obtain a UCSD affliate Campus Card.
  3. Go to the Student Business Services office to get your affliate Campus Card. Be sure to bring $15 and photo identification (passport, driver's license, or state ID card).
  4. Complete the email forwarding setup form and return it to: UCSD Retirement Association/ 9500 Gilman Drive, Dept. 0020/ La Jolla, CA 92093-0020.

The Retirement Association will notify you when your account is established.

 

Link your personal email with your ucsd.edu account

The Retirement Association recommends using Google Mail (Gmail) for email forwarding. Gmail is free and easy to set up. To set up a Gmail account, visit Google Mail. Once you've established your account, follow these instructions to set up email forwarding:

  1. Click Settings in the upper right corner.
  2. Under Settings header, click Accounts tab.
  3. Click Send mail as: and enter your ucsd.edu email address.
  4. When you receive a verification message from Gmail, follow the instructions to complete the setup.

If you need help setting up Gmail, send us an email or give us a call at (858) 534-4724. Please keep your email address current with the Retirement Association.
