Forward Emails from One Gmail Account to Another Email ID

Nowadays it's very common to have more than one email account. Many computer users do use multiple email accounts. Besides the primary and personal email account, the other reasons to use extra accounts might be anything. Such as official account, business account, an old account and sometimes a completely private account. In such a case, it is a serious headache to manage all the email accounts separately.

Forward Emails from Secondary ID to Primary G-mail ID

Let me clear the things, suppose you are using 3 email accounts, first is the personal, second is the official and third is for business purpose.
Would you check each and every single email account daily? I think the answer is no.

Typically we check our primary email account every day and other accounts occasionally. And because of this sometimes we missed some important emails of our other accounts, or reach them a bit late.

And if you are checking all of your email accounts separately on daily basis. Then I want to ask you why? And that too when you have a simple solution for it. You have the option to check all the emails of your different accounts in your primary Email account. Then why not be tested this useful feature.

Receive Emails from Any Other Account to Your Primary G-Mail ID


You may get rid of checking all of your email accounts separately by "Adding a forward Email address to your secondary Email accounts". For this you'll need to change a few settings in your secondary G-mail accounts. G-mail have an option to forward Emails from one account to another. You just need to select a main (primary) email account in which you want to receive all the emails of your other accounts. After then, you will have to config 'Forward settings' in all your other Email accounts.

By doing so, you will get all the emails of all your accounts in your primary Email inbox. Whenever a new email arrives to your other email accounts, it will also forward automatically to your primary email account.
It means, from now all the incoming emails of your other accounts will be automatically reach to your primary email inbox. You have no need to check all your email accounts separately, just check the inbox of your primary email, all the emails will be there.
