How to Forward Emails from One Gmail Account to Another

Gmail is the most popular email service developed by Google. Most of us have multiple Gmail accounts so that our personal and professional communications are sorted. But it’s really time consuming to login to each of them and check your emails. Fortunately Gmail allows us to automatically forward all our email messages to other email address. So you can setup a main account and forward all other important emails there. You can also use filters to forward certain messages to certain email address.

Forward All Emails from Gmail to Another Account

Using this method you can forward all your incoming email messages (excluding spam) to other email address. This can be useful if you are switching to a new email address and you still want to receive emails from your old Gmail account.

  • Sign in to your Gmail account from which you want to forward all your emails.
