How To Automatically Forward Gmail

Do you have a lot of email accounts? Do you want to keep track of the important emails without having to sign in to a different account every time? Let’s say you have multiple businesses and you get important emails from people all the time.


Because you don’t really open that email account too often, you miss out on them. Then, what you can do is enable the feature to automatically forward you the emails you get to the Gmail account you use every day. That’s where this feature comes in handy.

So, the next time you receive an important email on the account you don’t use, the email will be directly sent to your other email account. It will notify you that you have a message. So, you can log back in and answer that message.

How is that possible? The only way to do that is to forward emails from accounts. That’s exactly why we made this guide for you. Here we will show you how you can automatically forward emails from one Gmail account to the other. So, without further ado, let’s get right to it.

Step 1

Open the Gmail account you don’t use that often. Log in. Then, go to the top-right corner of the screen. Right under the question mark, you will notice a cog icon. This is the “Settings” menu. Click on it. It will open a drop-down menu. From it, select “Settings”. It is the third option from the top.

Step 2

You have now successfully opened the “Settings” on your Gmail account. In the top menu, you will see multiple tabs you can open. Select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP”. Then, click on “Add a forwarding address.”

It is the button in the “Forwarding” section. Enter the email address you are actively using all the time. Click “Proceed” and “OK” to confirm the changes.

Step 3

Open the email account you just typed in the forward section. Look for a verification message. Click on it and select the link you just received. This option will verify the changes.

Step 4

Go back to your Gmail account. Go to the same “Settings” options and open the same tab you did earlier. The one called “Forwarding and POP/IMAP”. In the same forwarding section where you typed the email earlier, you will see another option.

Instead of “Disable forwarding” click on “Forward a copy of incoming mail to”. After that, you can select to get a copy of that email in your Inbox. Or you can select any of the other options like mark it as read, archive it, or delete it. It is up to you.

Step 5

You can add more email accounts where you can forward emails. When you are done, click on “Save changes”.
