You can haveyour emails automatically forwarded to another address. You can forward all of your new messages, or just specific kinds of messages. Note that spam messages aren’t included when you choose to forward all new mail. To forward emails from another email provider to Gmail, you’ll have to change your settings in the other account, not in Gmail.
Visit your other email provider’s help center to find out if automatic forwarding is available and how to set it up.
- Open the Gmail account that you want to forward from.
- At the top right, click the gear .
- Select Settings.
- Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
- Click Add a forwarding address in the “Forwarding” section.
- Enter the email address you want to forward to.
- For your security, we’ll send a verification email to that address. Open your other email account and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team. If you’re having trouble finding it, check your Spam folder.
- Click the verification link in that email.
- Back in your Gmail account, reload the page in your web browser – look for the reload icon .
