Accessing Someone Else's E-mail Account
It is not possible for someone other than the account holder to access their e-mail. It is a breach of the Network Usage Agreement for an individual to give out their NetID and password so that others may access their e-mail account.
A department may put an "out of office" message on an ex-employee's e-mail account with Area Manager-level approval. If they would like an ex-employee's e-mails to be forwarded to another person's account, then Provost approval is required. These policies are in place for security and legal reasons.
