Gmail email forwarder
To set this up, log in to your Gmail account, click the cogwheel icon in the top-right corner and select the Settings option:
Add mail account
Go to Accounts section, then click Add a mail account option:
A new browser pop-up will launch where you need to put in the email address you want Gmail to pull emails from.
Put in your email address, and click the Next button to go to the next step.
On the following page, fill in the fields and select options as needed:
Username: Your full email address (this is the email account you’re pulling emails from)
Password: Password for your email account
POP Server and Port: Leave as default as Gmail usually guesses it properly
Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server: Check this if you want Gmail to leave copies of pulled emails on the source server (your original email account inbox)
Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail: Enable this for security purposes
Label incoming messages: Set this up if you want all new emails pulled from the source email address to have a custom label
Archive incoming messages: Check this option if you want emails from the source email address to be archived automatically and not show in your Gmail inbox
Once ready, click the Add Account button.
Next, choose if you want to be able to send emails from a source account using Gmail.
If no, click the Finish button to finish the setup process.
If yes, click the Next button and input the desired name to proceed further with the setup.
