Migrate contacts, appointments, out-of-office messages and forwarding

Your emails and mailbox folder setup will automatically appear on the new webmail interface. Forwarding and out-of-office messages will not show up in the new SOGo, but they will still be active if they have been set up in the old SOGo. You will need to manually transfer your address book and calendar as well as out-of-office messages and forwarding settings from the old SOGo version. How to do this in only a few steps is described in the linked how-to.

During a transition period, you will be able to access the old SOGo version at


to help you complete this migration.

After 22 August 2022, https://sogo.uni-heidelberg.de will direct you to the new system.

If you have any questions or experience any problems, please don't hesitate to contact the IT Service. We hope you will find working with the new webmail interface easy and efficient!
