You may have heard that Enterprise Security will soon put security in place that will block employees from forwarding their osu.edu email accounts to other accounts outside of the university (this change does NOT affect students, alumni and those with Lifetime Email Forwarding Service).

At last count, the population using Ohio State's email system was larger than the city of Cincinnati. With more than 300,000 users, our system serves a population roughly half the size of Columbus. We started with a system of over 100 domains, and we’re down to fewer than 50.
