Register with the Alumni Association for permanent email forwarding

(for alumni only)

The Harvard Alumni Association offers permanent, lifetime email forwarding for Alumni. It is a forwarding service that gives you a permanent email address, such as yourname@alumni.harvard.edu. Messages sent to your Alumni.Harvard address are forwarded directly to an email account you register with the service. 

Please note:

  1. This email forwarding address is not an account or mailbox that stores email.  It will not replace your current personal email or your Harvard email account.
  2. Setting up an alumni.harvard forwarding address does not mean that email is sent to your Harvard account.  It will automatically forward any email to the address you register.
