Forward email from your MLML account to your SJSU account

How do I know when I'm done setting up forwarding?

You disabled any forwarding from SJSU to MLML.

You set up forwarding from MLML to SJSU.

(Optional) You configured filters to label forwarded mail.


IMPORTANT!!! Please set up MLML > SJSU forwarding no matter what. Even if you plan to use a different address day-to-day, like forwarding to a CSUMB or personal email account, we ask that you also set up forwarding to SJSU. This helps MLML IT keep track of who has migrated. 

Follow the directions below to complete these steps:

NOTE: If you have set up forwarding from any other email accounts to your MLML address, we strongly suggest following the steps above to disable forwarding to your MLML address and set them up to forward to your SJSU address.

To apply filters and/or labels to mail that has been forwarded:

NOTE: If you would like all mail coming from your MLML account to be put into one folder, follow the instructions below. If you have filters set up in your MLML Gmail and would like your SJSU Gmail to continue using those, return to the comprehensive migration guide and follow the instructions for step two.


  1. In your SJSU Gmail settings, go to Filters and Blocked Addresses and click Create a new filter

  2. In the To: field, enter your MLML email address and any other parameters that you want.

  3. Click Create Filter/Continue and select Apply the label:

  4. Create a new label, titling it as you see fit
  5. Select Also apply filter to matching conversations.
  6. Click Create Filter.
