You can edit your profile to provide an email address and opt-in to having email forwarded from wd4dgc@arrl.net forwarded to that email address.

With the new ARRL website, I don't see the option to set up email forwarding options under the account profile. Is this something that will be added in the future?

Perhaps I am missing something, and I am a new member that joined after the recent change in your website. There is no email forwarding option in my account under Communication > Contact Information. You will also notice my userid when I post shows "u1000101618" when I post instead of my callsign. Strange...

I did report the email forwarding problem to ARRL technical support, and they think it has something to do with my recently acquired vanity callsign. For some reason there is no forwarding option appearing under My Account > Communication > Contact Information. So far no resolution to the problem.

In the meantime, thanks to whoever fixed my posts to reflect my callsign instead of "u" followed by ARRL member number. That also appears to be an artifact of the new website behavior.

Following some of the info here, I just tried to set up forwarding. In myArrl in Contact Info, I added another email. When I selected that option I got a box that popped up that said Location ( I believe that I recall ) and I selected ARRL.net Forwarding.... and for the email address I put in KG5JAI@arrl.net (this was simply a guess and may have been wrong!).

I then tried to send and email to kg5jai@arrl.net from my laptop ... and the email attempt bounced citing that the email address was not found.

Not sure what I will try next....but that sure didn't work.....

The email address is the address of the email account you want email sent to kg5jai@arrl.net forwarded to. Obviously you can't forward email from Kg5jai@arrl.net to Kg5jai@arrl.net. You will need to supply something like a cox.net or gmail account.

I discovered a solution to my issue getting the web form to work so I thought I would post it. Maybe it will help someone. My user id was set to my home email address so when I tried to create the arrl.net forward I would get a dialog pop up indicating that there were bad characters in the email. I could not figure this out for a while then when I posted to a forum I realized my user ID was posting as my email. So I went to my profile page and changed my user ID to my call sign and then the web page would work. So, once I picked the forward arrl.net in the drop down I could enter the email to forward to and it worked. So the web form automatically creates userid@arrl.net.

Does it take a while to process the addition of the email forwarding? I added this about an our ago and it is still not working. I did validate that the email address that I am forwarding to is working correctly as I am able to send email directly to it.

Question answered: It does appear to take some time to process the change or addition.

I just sent another test message and it worked correctly. In my case about 2.5 hours +/-
