Instructions for forwarding NCSSM email to one account

  1. Open the Gmail account that you want to forward from.

  2. At the top right, click the gear.

  3. Select Settings.

  4. Select the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.

  5. Click Add a forwarding address in the “Forwarding” section.

  6. Enter the email address to which you want to forward email.

  7. For your security, Google will send a verification email to that address. Open your other email account and find the confirmation message from the Gmail team. If you’re having trouble finding it, check your Spam folder.

  8. Click the verification link in that email.

  9. Back in your Gmail account, reload the page in your web browser.

  10. On the same Forwarding and POP/IMAP page in Settings, check that Forward a copy of incoming mail is selected and your email address is in the drop-down menu.

  11. In the second drop-down menu, choose what you want Gmail to do with your messages after they’re forwarded, such as keep Gmail’s copy in the Inbox (recommended) or archive Gmail’s copy.

  12. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

You can subsequently disable forwarding by clicking the Disable forwarding button in the “Forwarding” section of the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
