Forwarding Gmail to Gmail

Gmail has quickly become one of the most popular web-based email providers on the Internet today.  It’s easy to setup, easy to use and best of all it’s free.  If you’re like most WordPress users you probably have multiple Gmail accounts for each of your sites.  Also, you probably have one main account that the majority of your day-to-day email goes to.

Therefore, it makes sense to forward all of your secondary Gmail accounts to your main Gmail account.  Forwarding all of your secondary accounts will save you a ton of time that you would have otherwise wasted on logging in and logging out of each account.  The good news is that it’s very easy to forward one Gmail account to another and the video tutorial below will show you exactly how to do it. How to Forward Gmail to Gmail

How to Forward Gmail to Gmail

Here is the exact process you need to complete in order to forward your secondary Gmail accounts to your main Gmail account…

Step 1:  Log into both your main Gmail account and the secondary account that you’ll be forwarding.

Step 2:  Go to the Gmail account that you want to forward to the main account and click on the Settings icon > click Settings > click Forwarding and POP/IMAP > Add a Forwarding address and click Next > Confirm the forwarding address by clicking Proceed > a message will appear telling you that a confirmation code was sent to your main Gmail account.

Step 3:  Go to the Inbox of your main Gmail account and you will see a Forwarding confirmation email > open the email and you should see a Confirmation Code > copy the Confirmation Code and click the link below to the code to confirm that you received the Forwarding Confirmation email.

Step 4:  Go back to the secondary Gmail account that you’re forwarding to your main Gmail account and click on Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP > paste in the Confirmation Code and click Verify > click radio button that says, “Forward a copy of incoming mail to:” > scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes.

You’re Gmail to Gmail email forwarding is now complete.  As mentioned earlier, if you have a bunch of Gmail accounts you’ll most likely want to repeat this process for each of the secondary accounts.  Doing this ensures that you do not miss any important emails and it also saves you a ton of time in the long run.
