Gmail’s forwarding feature makes it easy to automatically pass emails on to other accounts without any effort on your part. With Gmail’s filter feature and a few extra steps, you can also automatically forward emails to multiple accounts.

Step One

The first step is to set up the email forwarding. Go to SettingsForwarding and POP/IMAP. Click the Add a forwarding address button. This will send an email to each address you wish to automatically forward emails to with a confirmation link that has to be clicked.

Forwarding

You will have to repeat this step for each email.

Step Two

Once each of the emails have been confirmed, you can create a filter for the messages you want to forward. With the filter feature, you can automatically forward emails with a specific subject line, from a specific sender, or even messages with  specific keywords.

Filter

Under Gmail’s Settings go to Filters and Blocked Addresses and click the Create new filter button. You can fill in the details for the emails you want to forward. Once you’ve filled it in, click Create filter with this search.

Step Three

The next step is to choose the emails you want to forward the emails to. Make sure to check “Forward it” and from the dropdown menu select the email addresses that have been confirmed.

      You have to use filters for all addresses past the first.

      Here's where things get a little tricky. We want to capture every email, but Google makes us filter based on *something.* So we use a workaround.

      At the bottom of the filter screen there is an option to filter based on size. Set that to greater than 0 bytes. All emails will be at least 1 byte, so your filter will catch every email!
