Sometimes you may want to forward emails from an account to other email addresses you have. Do you know that you can automatically forward emails from Gmail to multiple email addresses using filters. Here is a brief tutorial which works with Gmail as well as Google Apps accounts.
Automatically Forward Emails to only one Email address
1. Log in to your Gmail account and go to “Settings”. Click the “Forwarding and Pop/IMAP tab.
2. Select the radio button that says “Forward a copy of incoming mail to”. Enter the email address where you want to forward the incoming emails.
3. Hit “Save changes” and you are done.
Now all the emails sent to this email address will be automatically forwarded to the email address you specified above. Read this guide if you want to receive all incoming emails in desktop email client like Microsoft Outlook.
Automatically Forward All Emails to Multiple Email addresses
Gmail and Google apps do not support forwarding emails to multiple email addresses. However forwarding to multiple email addresses can be achieved by using a Gmail filter as described below:
1. Login to Gmail, click “Settings” and go to the “Filters” tab.
2. Click “Create a new Filter” and you will be shown something like the following:
3. Enter the current email address in the To: field.
4. Click “Next Step” and enter the email address where you wish to auto forward all the messages.
5. Hit the “Create Filter” button and you are done. Now all the emails received in this email address will be automatically forwarded to the second email address.
Similarly, you can add multiple filters to forward emails to multiple email accounts. Another better option would be to link multiple email accounts and check all your email at one place.
