At UNCCharlotte, email is also an official communications medium.
Everyone is able to forward email through our Sungard/SCT Luminus portal
(students) or MS Exchange (faculty/staff, soon to be everyone). While
forwarding is allowed, you do so at your own risk. It is still the
user's responsibility to comply with messages even if they don't receive
them. IT recommends against forwarding because they can't ensure
delivery, but you can still do it.
