These are instructions for setting your Gmail (@wethersfield.me) account to automatically forward emails to your (@wethersfield.k12.ct.us) email account. When you receive Gmail a copy will be automatically sent to your school account. Setting up forwarding makes it so you will know when you actually receive Gmail (because a copy will be sent to your school-based email account).
Forwarding mail to another email account automatically
Gmail lets you automatically forward incoming mail to another address, if you'd like.
Here's how to forward messages automatically:
- Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
- From the first drop-down menu in the Forwarding section, select 'Add new email address.'
- Enter the email address to which you'd like your messages forwarded.
- For your security, we'll send a verification to that email address.
- Open your forwarding email account, and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team.
- Click the verification link in that email.
- Back in your Gmail account, select the 'Forward a copy of incoming mail to...' option and select your forwarding address from the drop-down menu.
- Select the action you'd like your messages to take from the drop-down menu. You can choose to keep Gmail's copy of the message in your inbox, or you can send it automatically to All Mail or Trash.
- Click Save Changes.
You also can set up filters to forward messages that meet specific criteria. You can create 20 filters that forward to other addresses. You can maximize your filtered forwarding by combining filters that send to the same address.
