How do I set up an email forwarding rule in Amazon WorkMail?

Last updated: 2019-11-07

I want to create a rule in Amazon WorkMail that forwards my received email messages to another email address. How can I do this? 

Resolution

You can create a rule in your mailbox that:

  • Adds “FW:” to the beginning of the email subject line.
  • Changes the message formatting by adding “Auto forwarded by a rule”.
  • Forwards the message to the email address, WorkMail user, resource, or group that you specify in the rule.
  • Leaves a copy of the email in the inbox or folder that the message was originally intended for.

For instructions, see Working with Email Rules, and follow the steps for To create an email forwarding rule.

Note: Email rules won't work for recipients in Bcc.
