Auto-Forwarding Your Texas State Email

In order to ensure you receive email from instructors via TRACS, please do not auto-forward your Texas State email to any outside email services, such as Gmail or Yahoo Mail.

Outside email services have security features that often cause emails from TRACS to be blocked without notification. These email services and their security features are beyond our control, and any missed emails as a result of email forwarding cannot be recovered.
