Forwarding your myBCIT email

Note: Emails larger than 10 MB or have more than 5 attachments will not be forwarded.

If you don’t check your myBCIT email regularly or if you prefer to use another email address, you can set your myBCIT mailbox to forward all email to another address by following these steps.
