Proper forwarding and filtering from UWaterloo engmail to gmail

Warning: Engmail may fail to forward items on time, in extreme cases, taking up to 2-3 days or even completely fail to forward at all.  Do not rely on this to manage your school email – I am not responsible for missed e-mails because you failed to check the actual UW account through getmail.

  • Log into getmail.uwaterloo.ca
  • Click on Deliver/Divert/Forward
  • Check “Foward mail to”, enter your email address with the gmail’s + sign hack. For example,
    • myemail+uwaterloo@gmail.com
  • Go into your gmail.
  • Create a filter.  For the field “Has the words”, enter:
    • deliveredto:myemail+uwaterloo@gmail.com

with the correspoding email address you set up previously.

Now you can properly label and organize your forwarded emails.
