Email Delivery and Forwarding

delivery point is where your “@uci.edu” email is sent. If you want your OIT MailBox email sent to a different address, you can change your delivery point.

Preset Delivery Points

  • Faculty, Staff and Sponsored UCInetIDs
    When you activate your UCInetID, your delivery point is NOT set.
  • Students
    Delivery points are set to UCI Gmail Services.

Where do you want your UCI email delivered?

The choice of where you want your UCI email delivered is yours. You may choose to have your email delivered to:

  • OIT MailBox Services
  • Your local department email server
  • An off campus email address

Setting Your Delivery Point

Health Affairs Personnel: To help ensure the security of confidential email traffic, Health Affairs personnel are not permitted to change their UCI email delivery point to an external address. This function has been disabled. Please contact the Help Desk at (714) 456-3333 with any questions.

  2. If you are an undergraduate student using UCI Gmail, follow the directions for delivery to your UCI Gmail account.
  3. If you are using a server other than OIT MailBox Services, find out the full email address and write it down. For example, samuel.omeone@gmail.com
  4. Go to PhUpdate at: http://www.uci.edu/cgi-bin/phupdate
  5. Login with your UCInetID and password.
