CS emails

Most students have their CS email automatically forwarded to their ITS Google Email. This is done with the ~/.forward file.

If you want to change where your CS email is forwarded (e.g., maybe you are about to graduate, and want to forward your CS emails to your new job or institution), just edit your .forward file and change the email address in there. For example, if you edit with vim:

vim .forward

If you don’t want to use an editor like vim, you can also just echo a new email address to the .forward file, using output redirection:

echo "newaddress@wherever.com" > .forward
