NOTE: After you graduate, UTS will notify you when your McMaster email account will expire. Once your account expires, you will not have access to your account, including your inbox and folders. Email forwarding simply ensures that emails sent to your account are forwarded along to another inbox; it does not continue your access to your McMaster email account.
