You can automatically forward your messages to another address. You can choose to forward all new messages, or just certain ones.

Note: You can only set up forwarding on your computer, and not on the Gmail app. If you have an account through work or school and have trouble, contact your administrator.

Note: When your new messages are forwarded, messages from spam won't be included.
