How To Forward Gmail Emails To Any Other Email Account
Got a lot of mail addresses? Want to get all emails in a single id? Stick with us to learn how you can easily forward gmail emails to other email accounts.
This tutorial is all about forwarding our emails from one Gmail account to another email account. There may be so many reasons behind doing so as hiding your main email address from spammers etc and that's a complete different story so coming back to our topic.
We can easily transfer/forward our emails from Gmail to any other single or multiple email accounts within a span of few clicks. The whole process takes no more than 5 minutes and voila, you can simply forget about missing any email or opening multiple email accounts each time. It saves hell lot of time, no? :)
Steps To Forward Gmail Emails To Another Email Account
Just follow these easy steps given below. ( Note: I am using "basic HTML view" of Gmail rather than "Standard view" as it loads faster).
Step 1) Be Logged into your Gmail account if not already then click on the Settings link on the top left the side.
Step 2) After that you will be headed over to the Settings Area where you can do a lot more than email forwarding alone. This time you will see General settings so click on Forwarding and POP/IMAP link on the left side.
Step 3) Enter your new Email address where you want all your emails to be forwarded and click on Add button.
Step 4) After that you will be asked to enter the CODE which has been sent to your Email address to verify it so add it there and click on verify button as you can see in the screenshot below. This step is to verify that you own this email account and no mistake has been made. In any case, the rare one although, you do not receive any verification email from google then just click on Resend Email button and this time you will definitely receive the verification email.
Step 5) Almost done! This time you will see a new option which will let you choose the email accounts you have verified to use for forwarding. Select your email from the drop down list and click on save button.
You can add more than one email account and the process is same as above. This is really simple and useful feature of Gmail which lets us forward our emails to a new email address. If I missed something or did not explain thoroughly then let me know.
Did I use It Myself?
Yes of course, I am using it for more than a year and the half and I never missed any email but it takes little more time to reach in our inbox after it is received in older email account.
However, the emails which are caught up in spam folders would not be forwarded. I am happy with this service and I log back in my old accounts on free time to check if any important emails are caught up in spam. Any other question remaining would be answered in comments as soon as time allows. See you in comments :) and also let me know if you're using it or not.
