Last fall, in response to alumni outreach, the University decided not to discontinue Harvard’s and email forwarding service.  

Since then, Harvard IT and Alumni Affairs and Development teams have explored alternatives to the University’s current email forwarding offering. As a result of this research, the University will create a new partnership with an external email forwarding service that we are confident will add significant value to this program. In a phased approach, we will be offering this service first to the Classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023, after which we will migrate existing users. Starting in 2024, we will open up the service to all eligible alumni.

If you are an existing email forwarding user, you can keep using your email forwarding address as you have been and don’t need to do anything right now. We will reach out once we know the exact timing of the migration of your email into our new system and will share anything you may need to do to prepare at that point.
