Will I be able to send emails from my Washington University email?

After you set up a forwarding email address, you will continue to send email via your existing ISP, and your true sending address will appear on the "From" line of your outgoing message. However, many email programs allow you to set the default "Reply" address on your messages to something other than the sending address. By setting your default "Reply" address to your Washington University email address, responses from your correspondents will be sent to your alumni email forwarding address and redirected to your inbox.
