Auto Email forwarding to external accounts is disabled

Automatic forwarding of NSCC email to an external (non-NSCC) mailbox has been disabled.

To ensure the security of the email system, the College has restricted the ability of users to auto-forwarding their NSCC email to external addresses.

This is standard security practice in many organizations as forwarding email increases the risk of phishing scams and negatively affects our security score with groups like Microsoft.

This also ensures users are compliant with the NSCC Email Policy, sections 3.1 and 3.4:

  • “Employees of NSCC shall not use any non-NSCC email accounts for carrying out NSCC business or processing NSCC business records.”
  • “Use of College email services must not lead to disruptions to or impacts on College email services and internet access.”

Employees and students are expected to use their emails for all NSCC related business and information.
