The LSE alumni email address is a free forwarding service available to all LSE alumni who are registered with the LSE Alumni website
. It allows you to maintain a permanent email forwarding address associated with LSE, providing an easy way to keep in touch with friends and colleagues following graduation and during your working life - without having to constantly update your contacts whenever your email address changes. How email forwarding works
Any email sent to your LSE alumni email address will be forwarded to a destination email address you specify, for example your personal Hotmail account or your work account – this destination email address can be changed whenever you like. Your LSE alumni email forwarding address is not an email account service and as such you will not be able to send or otherwise store email with this service.
You will not be able to forward emails from your LSE network account using this service. You should continue to send and store emails using your personal email account. How to get started
Please note that, although you are able to register online as a student (with your student ID number), you will not be able to access and use the Email Forwarding service until you have graduated.
You will need to register with the LSE Alumni website to set up your alumni forwarding address. Once you have logged into your account
, simply follow the steps listed below:
- go to the My Public Profile page and click on the Email Forwarding block (You will not be able to see this block until you have graduated)
- Click Edit. Select your LSE alumni email (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
- choose your main email account (e.g. email@example.com) to which you would like messages to be forwarded
- distribute your LSE alumni email
- check your main email account for messages
Please allow for 24 hours from time of registration for the email forwarding to be operational. Sending messages as if from your LSE email forwarding address
Many email accounts may allow you to spoof the "from" address so that it appears emails sent from your personal account originate from your LSE address.
Some information on how to set this up within Microsoft Outlook Express, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Mail, Pegasus Mail and Eudora is available in the Email forwarding section.
Information on some of the more popular web-based email accounts is available as follows: Hotmail or Outlook
We are not able to offer any personalised technical support for this service, as it relates to your own email account rather than the LSE address.
