You can also choose what will happen to the messages in your WildcatMail account once they are forwarded:
* Keep CSU, Chico Mail's copy in the Inbox: original unread copy of the email will remain in your WildcatMail inbox.
* Mark CSU, Chico Mail's copy as read: keep original copy of the email in your WildcatMail inbox, but mark it as read.
* Archive CSU, Chico Mail's copy: places the original unread email in your WildcatMail's "All Mail" folder.
* Delete CSU, Chico Mail's copy: places the original unread message in your WildcatMail's "Trash" folder, where it will remail for 30 days before being permanently deleted.

If you want to set up forwarding and then forget about it indefinitely, then the Delete option is the one you should choose.  Otherwise you run the risk of going over the size limit on your account.

5. Save Changes

Choose Save Changes at the bottom of the page when you are done making changes.
