Forwarding Course Emails

Blackboard allows students to forward a copy of their internal 'Blackboard' emails to an external email account of their choosing.

For example, if you already have a personal email account that you check daily, you can configure Blackboard to send a copy of your course emails to that account.

Configuring Blackboard to Forward Your Email

1. After logging into Blackboard, you will see the 'My UNB Courses' homepage. Click the 'My Settings' link in the upper right-hand corner.
