Automatically forwarding emails may cause delivery problems for Clemson community

An email icon on an iPhoneClemson is continuously evaluating email security and enhancements that are needed to protect our Clemson community and data. A recent change to implement URL Defense through Proofpoint has resulted in increased delivery issues for some users that are automatically forwarding messages from Clemson’s email service to services not managed by Clemson, including personal Gmail accounts.

If you have set up automatic forwarding from your Clemson managed email to a non-Clemson email account, please be advised that forwarding is not recommended. These services are unsupported and our ability to troubleshoot any email delivery issues will be limited.

Please contact the CCIT Support Center with any questions. You can call/text (864) 656-3494, email or start a web chat at
