How to forward Gmail emails to another Gmail address

Get to know how to configure email forwarding and check the emails from all your addresses directly in your new mailbox.



Email forwarding is a very useful function. For example, you want to change your email address and have already created a new one. But not everyone knows the new address, so you still need to get emails from the old address. Regularly checking two mailboxes will take to much of your time. In this case, it is easier to configure email forwarding and check the emails from both addresses directly in your new mailbox.

  1. Click the gear icon in the Gmail interface.
  2. Click the Settings button in the menu that opens.
    Gmail - settings
  3. On the settings page, go to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  4. Press the Add a forwarding address button.

  9. Click the confirmation link from the email.
  10. Click the Confirm button.
  11. Now return to our new mailbox. Refresh the forwarding settings page.
