How do I forward my email to another email address?

  1. Go to https://calmail.berkeley.edu
  2. Choose "Manage Your Account" from the menu on the left. You'll be authenticated via CalNet Login.
  3. If prompted, select the desired account to manage.
  4. Choose "Manage Your Redirects", select the appropriate Redirect, and update the destination as you desire.
  5. If you don't find your @eecs email address under Redirects, click "Manage Your Account" and choose "Forwarding" from the menu on the left. Modify your forwarding to your preference.

If you are unable to login to CalMail, or no longer have an active CalNet ID, then you may update any forwarding by sending your request to help@eecs. Your mail can be forwarded to more than one mail server at a time (so you can have multiple copies sent to multiple mail servers, if you want).

What are the various EECS email aliases?

The EECS department has a number of email aliases which can be used for administrative or technical support or to contact students, staff and/or faculty.

These aliases are for department use only. Please do not give out any of these aliases to the general public.
