I don't think that answer is quite what you are looking for.

In order to forward your old mail to your new mail address, you must have access to your old mailbox. If you are loosing that access, then you will also loose the ability to forward mail from there to somewhere else.

Is the old email address a work address or an ISP address?

actually, it is my university email address that I am using now, and I am going to graduate, so I don't want the email to go to the old address anymore !!

The best thing to do is set up an email alias with one of the many sites on the internet that offer mail forwarding for free. This is what evileban was posting as an answer, and it is a good idea, but not the answer for your question.

Iname is what I have been using for several years. I have changed ISP 3 times and I have never had to tell anyone anything about the change since my iname address remains the same. I think Iname has been purchased by another company though.

However, what you want to do cannot be done as you describe it. When a piece of email is sent out, it is sent to a specific host. There is no way to intercept the email and redirect it unless you do it from the host it was sent to. A 3rd party cannot do that.

Setting up a forward rule on the existing email server may be possible. Your school may do that since I am sure this is not an uncommon problem with students graduating.

You should contact your schools Email administrator to find out if they will forward your email to the new address for a while until you can let everyone know your new address.
