How to forward emails automatically from Gmail?
It is easy to automatically forward emails from Gmail to your @mailparser.io inbox. All you need to do is to create a filter in Gmail and define a forwarding address for this filter. As the target, you would then just add your @mailparser.io inbox address.
You can read about how to set up a filter directly at Google support website.
After creating the forwarding filter in Gmail, a confirmation code needs to be entered. This confirmation code is inside an e-mail which Google sends to your @mailparser.io inbox. In most cases, mailparser.io is able to identify this kind of e-mail and will automatically send the confirmation back to your Gmail account. Just check your Gmail account one minute after creating the filter and you should see an e-mail from us with the confirmation code.
If you do not receive the confirmation code automatically, you need to manually find the confirmation code inside your @mailparser.io inbox. Navigate to your mailparser.io inbox, click on the email sent by Google and then click on "Original Email". You'll see the content of the email with the confirmation link to google. Click it and the forwarding filter becomes active.
Will Google also forward old emails?
Please note that this method will only forward new incoming emails. You can also read our mass forward old gmail emails blog article on this topic in case you want to dig deeper and transfer old emails.
