Add Auto Email Forwarding in your Gmail

Automatically forward Gmail messages to another account

You can choose to forward all of your new messages to another email address, or only forward certain types of messages. 

Set up automatic forwarding 

You can automatically forward your messages to another address. You can choose to forward all new messages, or just certain ones.

Note: You can only set up forwarding on your computer, and not on the Gmail app. If you have an account through work or school and have trouble, contact your administrator.

Note: When your new messages are forwarded, messages from spam won't be included.

Turn on automatic forwarding

  1. On your computer, open Gmail using the account you want to forward messages from. You can only forward messages for a single Gmail address, and not an email group or alias.
  2. In the top right, click Settings Settings and then See all settings. 
  3. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.

  6. Click Next and then Proceed and then OK.

  10. In the "Forwarding" section, select Forward a copy of incoming mail to.
