Transfer Email

You can now drag and drop messages from your student account into your employee account using either option below.

Option 1

If you would like your student emails to be transferred, yet stored in a separate folder from your employee mail, create a new folder in your employee mailbox (right click on the "Inbox" folder and click New Folder…).

Then drag and drop your student messages into the new folder you created.

Note: If you drag and drop an item from the student account mailbox to the employee account folder, that item is moved entirely (not copied).

Option 2

To transfer messages from your student "Inbox" to your employee "Inbox":

  • Click on your student "Inbox" folder and select all messages by keying "Ctrl+A" on your keyboard (all messages will be highlighted blue).
  • Click any of the blue highlighted messages, then drag and drop them into the your employee "Inbox" folder.

Note: If you drag and drop an item from the student account mailbox to the employee account, that item is moved entirely (not copied) to the destination mailbox.

Once you have moved messages, you will need to forward your BeachMail email address to your @csulb.edu email address to ensure messages received after the transfer of email continue to arrive in your email account.  To accomplish the email forwarding, please follow the steps below.

  1. Sign in to your BeachMail account at BeachMail.csulb.edu.

  3. Select See All Options.
  4. Click Connected Accounts tab.
  5. Scroll down to Forwarding.
