University staff, who are also registered as students, will be automatically provided with a Student Myport Google Mail account. All communication regarding course(s) will be emailed to this account and is therefore required and cannot be deleted. It is strongly recommended that staff set up an auto forward from their Myport Google Mail account to their Staff Google Mail account.



Log in to Myport Gmail from the MyPort homepage using your student email address and password.

From the cog menu (top right hand side of the page) select Settings

Gmail Display settings

Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.

Under the Forwarding options, choose the option to Add a forwarding address and enter your staff account email address.

Select the option to keep University of Portsmouth Mail's copy in the Inbox from the drop down box. Choose Save Changes

Gmail Forwarding settings

The emails will now be forwarded to your staff Google Mail account.
