Automating Email Forwarding to an Enclave Inbox

Updated 4 months ago by Elvis Hovor

This document explains how to enable automated email forwarding to your enclave. You can submit incident and alert information directly to your enclaves using a variety of techniques, including email.

This procedure is useful when you have automated alerts set up in your inbox and want to automatically submit such alerts as a report to your TruSTAR enclave.

Automatic Forwarding in Microsoft Outlook

  1. At the top of the page, select Settings > View all Outlook settings.
  2. Select Mail > Forwarding.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To turn on forwarding, select Start forwarding, enter the forwarding email address and select Save.
      Note: Select the Keep a copy of forwarded messages check box if you want a copy of the original message to remain in your mailbox.
    • To turn off forwarding, select Stop forwarding and select Save.

Automatic Forwarding in Gmail

  1. Log into the Gmail account you want to forward messages from. You can only forward messages for a single Gmail address, and not an email group or alias.
