If you have a Paubox hosted email account, but have been using a different email account (gmail, yahoo, aol, etc.) to communicate with others, then you'll wonder how will I alert others about my new Paubox email address?
At Paubox Inc. we recommend that you setup an automated vacation reply on your old email account and setup email forwarding to your Paubox email account for the short term. In the long term you should only be using your Paubox hosted email account to send, receive, and store your emails with protected health information (PHI).
Setup A Vacation Reply
The reason you want to setup your vacation reply is so that anyone that sends an email to your old email address will be alerted about your new Paubox email address. To setup your automated vacation reply, follow the links below for some common email accounts. Once you have setup your vacation reply, anyone that sends an email to your old email account, will get an automated reply with your customized message alerting them of your new Paubox email address.
Setup Email Forwarding
The reason you want to forward emails from your old email account into your new Paubox email address is so that you don't have to check between two different email accounts for the same message. With email forwarding you can reply from your Paubox email account and notify the sender that you have a new email address and for them not to send emails with PHI to your old email account. To setup email forwarding for some common email systems, follow the link below.
