This article describes how to ensure that spam from your Virginia Tech Gmail account is accessible when you set up forwarding to a different account. You want to do this so you can periodically review your spam to ensure all legitimate emails are reaching you.
These directions will only forward new spam that arrives after the filter is set. It will not affect email messages that are already marked as spam.
If you are forwarding to your Virginia Tech Exchange Online account, then the email forwarded as a result of this filter could arrive in the Junk Email folder of your Virginia Tech Exchange account.
One method to manage spam in your desktop email client is to configure your client to access both your VT Gmail account and the account to which you are forwarding. To configure a desktop client to access VT Gmail, see Checking VT Gmail through Secondary Applications.
By configuring your client to access both your VT Gmail account and the account to which you are forwarding, you can view the spam in your VT Gmail account by clicking on the Spam folder.
